Re: What is plugging up my gas tank?????
Ok guys here is an update on my crushed tank.
KYOST was correct in his assumption.
I was wrong about the tank being pushed in from backing over a chunk of wood.
It turns out the gas vent was crushed beneath the battery box compleatly closing it off!
Yesterday I siphoned the gas out of the tank then I put the rzr in the sun with the seat out to warm up the gas tank.
Then I hit the vent with compressed air and the tank popped out some.
So I took a hairdryer and CAREFULLY WARMED the bottom of the tank and gave it some more air, and tada!
Yes it was rather spooky to preasurize the tank and I'm not saying anyone should try it, (official disclaimer) but now the float is no longer jammed up against the filler tube and the guage works again!
To finish it off I ran a new vent line to the tank.
Jackalope I'm sure you have fixed your problem, but If you haven't, check your gas tank vent hose, I bet you have a plugged vent line and your fuel pump pulled a vaccumm and crushed the tank.
