Goes way back.

The old 45" flatheads had the right tank for gas, and the left tank was oil.

Now it's a styling homage to the old days.

While my '08 Road King LOOKS like it has the old split tanks, it's really a 1-piece tank.

Gas pressure buildup


Replace the gas caps with new. It sounds like the vent in the original gas cap is stuck and not working.

I have an 85 Toyota pick up efi and I put a new fuel pump in and I cant put the gas cap on tight or it builds pressure and with it off it leaks gas out the overflow in the engine compartment?


Either the Gas Cap is shot or the tank vent is clogged. First thing i would recommend would be to try swapping the gas cap for one from another car (without the same problem).
The Gas Cap should be a vented style cap, but if it quits it can build up pressure inside the tank. If swapping the cap doesn't stop the pressure, than the vent is clogged, it's on top of the tank

Gas will not flow freely enough from tank to carb, keeps running out of gas when tank has gas in it. stop and turn reserve back and forth then gas flows again.


Try loosening the gas cap to see if the tank is venting properly. Gas can't flow from the tank unless air can get in to replace it. If loosening the cap solves the problem then try to clear the vent in the cap or just get a new cap.

My service engine soon light was on. I took the vehicle to a mechanic and the code came back po422. A smoke check was performed and they said it had a leak in the filler neck and the entire gas tank needed...


If they forgot to tighten the hose clamps on the hose from the tank to the filler cap it could be setting it off. If they are all tight it was probably just the gas cap. The gas cap is usually ALWAYS the culprit. Let me know if this helps

Gas leaking from the cap area of the gas tank


Sounds as if the seal on that gas cap is old and worn out. Replace the gas cap.

Just bought a used leaf blower, homelite, gas leaks out of the gas tank, where the gas tube fits into it.


"top of the gas tank where the gas tube fits into the tank"

I assume you're describing the gas tank cap. if so, the o-ring is missing from the gas tank cap. You can find those at hardware stores.
