Diesel fuel in back end bilge, step-up section.

Recommended Posts

Getting small amounts of fuel showing up whenever I fill up the tank. Took apart the settee and the tank doesn't appear to be high enough to have fuel at the aft end of the upper bilge. Would appear to be fuel line to the tank. Anyone with experience on this on this issue? Thanks!

Someone is going to need to inspect the entire fill hose while someone else pours in fuel. Did you fill the tank and hose all the way to the deck? (Which I do not do unless I am going to burn it up in the next few hours.)

A lot cheaper & cleaner to just replace the hose if you're certain of your diagnostic. A careful visual examination might reveal cracking in the hose exterior, esp in bends.

If the hoses are accessible, change them all out.  It’s short money to fix a bigger issue.
