Re: Runaway diesel
Some years ago I had a boat with a Yanmar 3GM30 and I had a small container in the lazerette filled with gasoline for the outboard. The gasoline leaked and found its way into the engine enclosure and just the petrol vapor was enough cause the engine to briefly run away.
It came under control before any damage was done and I learned a valuable lesson about gasoline storage.
