wrong gas cap?
I did not even know where to post this one . . . I passed a co-worker a few days ago on my way to the office. He said, that while it sounded "kick-***", (1966 Impala, 327, flowmaster duals, total sleeper) he smelled raw fuel as a passed. I checked the fuel system - nothing.
I checked the orginal equipment gas cap and saw signs of leakage. It made sense, accelerate quickly, gas splashes to the back of the gas tank, then leaks out of the gas cap. So, I bought a new gas cap that was supposed to be a correct replacement.
This is my problem . . . the leaking stopped, but the gas cap seems "sucked on" when I go to fill it up. The last time I put gas in it I had to use a pair of channel locks to take it off.
I put the old one back on for now. What in the world would cause this?
