Re: Fuel Tank Location - Above Carb Level?

INBOARD Gasoline tanks are required to have and anti-siphon valve

My Cal 29 A4 has no problem sucking fuel through one and it is a massive safety upgrade form hoping the carb float does not stick open

I will post some pictures tonight as I chose a 14 gallon tank in my refit due to nature of my boat use

I should also have a shot of how well my extra 6 gallon can stowed ABOVE DECK form last summers long trip



I am not sure how different the 29 and 30 are but that bump in the stern was almost designed to hold a jerry can safely



I don think you could get a fuel supply below and A4 carb it is so low on the motor

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
