Consequences of Overfilling Fuel Tank
What bad things happen when this is done? I live close to gas station, fill my tank when returning from a ride. With bike on side stand, I can't seem to keep from filling the tank slightly above the bottom of the inner neck. Had one incident during the summer where fuel leaked thru the carbs.........my theory is the heat caused a pressure build (tank could not vent) up within the tank, and the petcock allowed fuel to flow to the carbs, which also could not contain the extra pressure. Opinions?
