Darn near blew the gas cap across the lot
This weekend with temps of 87 and 94, I went to fill up my camaro and instead of a slight pffttt when I backed the cap half way off, it did more of a PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFTTTTTTTTTTTTT
with great pressure I felt on my hand. Its a vented cap but I thought it might be defective so I bought a new one and after driving around the next day, it was still holding alot of pressure in the tank. I also have been smelling unburned fuel at idle at stop lights etc, telling me that pressure is forcing fuel into my Qjet and not burning it all.
My vent line from the carb is all hooked up too.
I now orderd a new Stant locking cap #11492 that Advanced Auto said was the number called for in their catalog for my car. I pick it up tomorrow but this will be my 3rd cap now too. Anyone else have any other ideas on how or why this pressure is building up?
