#3748, "Real Men of Genius"


  

          

Here's to you, Mr. Bass Boat Fuel Tank inventor
You didn't want to make a fuel tank like every car in America uses, no
You made a special fuel tank
An especially crappy one
That spills fuel when you fill up
And spills fuel when the tank is full
And overflows on to your trailer and your hands
So you have to sit there holding back the nozzle cover
At 4am in the morning when it's 32 degrees
You, are a real man of genius

That's why the gas stations all have those squeegees

Wrap a small towel around the nozzle where it enters the tank. It won't stop it completely but it sure does contain most of it.

You should sell a product that does what the towel does. If it was less than 5 bucks, I would buy it. Then you would be the real man of genius :)

I love seeing Rob go thru the pains and frustrations of a fiberglass bass boat! Yeah, fuel tank issues still have not been resolved as of 2010 bass boat models that I'm aware of. I am wearing a particularly heavy bit of 87 Octane right now as a matter fact...the best is when the guy at the pump on the other side of your pump manages to time when he is done pumping so you get an extra surge at the top of your fill up. I swear today was an all time overflow thanks to a surge of fuel while I was "feathering" it in the ever elusive game of trying to guess how many gallons you need based on your fuel gauge. I guess a smartcraft gauge on a Merc might solve that though. Anyway, yeah, makes no sense that the fuel fill is so ridiculous on boats.

ROFLMAO. Well I am glad to see I'm not the only one with this issue. Sorry about your surge issues Matt :)\

A few years back I went fishing with Jamon in his Dad's big ocean boat. We went to fill up and he set the nozzle and walked away. When it got to the top of the tank it started spilling but the nozzle didn't shut off so it shot gas everywhere. A solid gallon. Terrific.

my boat has the gas tank to the left of the driver console under the deck and has a deck plate over the gas tank that I open when filling up and I can see when the gas is at the top of the tank before spilling over. the spill over is the worst because then you have gas all over your hands and eating the side of the boat you would think they would fix that issue.

I just put the nozzle in and lock the handle and walk away. I have never had mine overflow?? I can also open the back hatch if I want to and see how much fuel is in the tank. My biggest anoyance is pouring in the oil without getting any on my boat. I rarley succeed
