    Strong fuel smell?

    After my skis had been in the garage for a week, I went to get them to ride this weekend and my wife's VX Deluxe had a strong smell of gas. I opened it up and saw no leaks or gas anywhere. The smell was really strong though. It ran fine all day yesterday though, not one problem. Any ideas on why the smell is so strong? You could not smell any gas at all on the SHO.

    Yeah, you are probably right My wife wants to trade it for a FX Cruiser HO, so I may be getting rid of it anyway. I checked today and there is no smell. It may have just farted
