Crestliner Fuel Fill Problem

3 posts in this topic

Hi all, I need some help. My Step-Dad is having a problem when he is filling up his Crestliner 1650 Fishhawk with gas. He says that he has to fill the tank very, very slowly or it "spits" out back at him. It sounds like a venting issue to me but where would the vent be located so that it can be filled at full gas pump pressure like I can on my boat?

I have the same boat and it took me awhile to figure it out. The vent is right near the top of the fill hole. THe solution is having a funnel that gets past the vent and goes directly into the tank. I bought a simple funnel that has an angled spout that goes into the tank and it solved the problem entirely. If filling up at the pump, just make sure to put the spout as far into the tank as possible and it will work.

Wow, thanks for the speedy detailed help! I think this will save my Step-Dad's sanity after buying a new boat.

Again, Thank you!

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
