View Full Version : Side Gas Vents

05-04-2012, 05:18 PM
Called the dealer and just wanted to run it by your all. Side gas vents on boat, are they one way or two way vents. We have a 2011 x55 and noticed after getting the right ballast on the boat for surfing sometimes the wave goes over these vents. Don't want to suck water into the gas tank. We have never noticed a problem with water in the fuel, but recently just added another fat sack to the boat and have it perfect now for surf.

Thanks in advance.

This vent is more or less like the ones on the 2011 boats with some changes due to the new fuel system regulations.

As you can see it has a small pea trap that will keep most of the water out, but it is still a concern.

Thank you for the research and answer. Anyone else have examples or issues?
