I have a 97 ProStar 190 that seems to always leaks some fuel from the tank vent fitting (no matter how full the tank is). Does anyone have this problem? What is the correct routing of the vent hose from the tank to the fitting? Perhaps mine is routed incorrectly?

Thanks.

Mike

there should be a inline one way valve that lets vapor out of your tank but not fuel. sounds like it's inoperative and needs to be replaced.
allowing fuel in our lakes is not a option, get it fixed ASAP !
this is a inexpensive repair.

Cheers
Jeff

Where is the vent on a 98 190 ? Don't see a vent through the transom. Thanks in advance.

Thanks Mike. I'm trying to help my neighbor with his boat. He can't find the vent hose and valve. Is it near the fill hose ? Thanks
