    Yep, seen this before. Happens when the dealer or whoever doesn't install the vent tube correctly or it has a kink in it. It will expand back out and be just fine.

    Mine did that when I installed my TBM aux fuel tank. There's a thread on it.

    The vent had some silicone in it from the dealer or factory, We used an air compressor to get the tank yo pop back to size.

    im surprised there wasnt a noticable lack of power due to fuel starvation but obviously the f/p was able to handle the extra suction. i never ever go on a ride without lifting the seats at least twice just to check that everything is where it should be and that no leaks have developed. i guess this is just habitual from being involved with expensive machinery all my life. you just never know when something minor turns into a major.
