Has anyone ever had trouble with a 1996 petrol 80 series building up a lot of pressuer in the fuel tank? (too much pressure!)
Where do I look after the carbon canister if ther is no obstruction there?

Cheers

Hairy,

Check the breather on the fuel cap mate. I know our work 75 Series (diesel) utes get the little brather hole blocked occasionally and then you actually starve the motor of fuel as the tank drops to about 1/4 tank - purely due to the vacuum created. With a petrol you'll have the expansion problem which mighten be able to escape hence the high pressure. Just my thoughts.

Cheers,
Hughesy

Cheers for the thoughts but apparently they dont have a breather hole and are suposed to have a little pressure in them because of the fuel injection.
Thanks anyway

Check that the fuel cap is genuine- If not, head to a wreckers. If it is, might be worth cleaning it out.

How do you know there is too much pressure?

After unscrewing the cap I pressed the little flap down inside the filler to release some of the pressure and fuel spewed out and covered me!
Great stuff in your eyes!
