slow fuel fill

My PS 37 also had a very slow fuel fill and if I pushed too hard it would burp fuel out of the deck fill. The fuel vent line had a wasps nest in it that restricted the airflow during filling.I also use a 1 1/4 " pipe screwed into the deck fill that allows a better angle for the fill nozzle as well as preventing seawater from entering the tank while filling from a jerry can at sea.

good luck,
