    Strong Gas Smell From 06 RXP

    The entire time I've owned my RXP I've noticed a strong fuel smell in the battery compartment, but now that I store it in the garage it is really noticable. I have it covered up and it is still causing the entire garage to smell like fuel. What should I check for this? If anyone has photos of known problem areas that would help too. Thanks

    Is your tank breather hooked up? Check your fuel lines for leaks.

    I know mine was a different fuel assy. design(0, but I had a hairline crack on the top part of the assy.

    Thanks guys, I'll check it out. I thought it may be normal at first which is why I haven't dug into it, but now that the garage smells like gas I know that probably isn't right, I just didn't know if there were any known problems

    yeah that's not right, my ski sits on a stand in my garage and I never smell any fumes unless i'm changing injectors or the fuel pump or filling with gas. I sometimes smell fuel if it's running reallly rich and I'm getting some blow by.

    I had a leak at the factory regulator where the fuel hose attaches from the fuel rail to the regulator. I forgot to tie down my front air intake, so it kept hitting that barb which caused it to have a crack at the base of that fitting.
