[DML] Re: fuel vent / fuel pump / venting problem

Pull the cover on the left rear pontoon off and remove the charcol
cannister. Pop the bottom off with the hose. Make sure the filter is
clean and the hose is not plugged up. The filter can be replaced (any
big auto store will have it) and stick a wire inside the hose to clean
it. If this doesn't fix it the vent hose from the tank to the
cannister may be kinked or plugged up.
