We are the proud new owners of a '07 44' Tartan monohull
. When we try to fill up her diesel
tank, she burps the fuel
right back up. It doesn't matter how slowly we dispense the fuel
or at what angle—she just burps it right back up.
We motored for a while and then went back and tried to put fuel in again to no avail—burped back up. Thankfully the fueling dock
had absorbent pads we could purchase
to wipe up the mess.
Sure would be nice to know how much fuel we have before a long voyage. The fuel gage says it is only half full.
What could be causing this? Any solution ideas? Anyone else had this problem?
