Don't know. I'm guessing that there may be one somewhere. Good thought.

If you have on it will near the gas tank feed, I do not have one on my Maxum.

I looked in the engine compartment and didn't see one. Perhaps there is one behind the wall near the tank.

Start at the tank on the fuel line that goes to the engine and trace it ti the engine, if not one before the filter then none. BTY I think the gas coming out is draining back down the fuel line from the carb, hard to believe it will flow up from the tank.

I would tend to agree Mike, however there seemed to be a lot more coming out than I would have thought would have been in the fuel line & carb.

The filter holds about a quart of gas and is filled to the brim which causes it to slosh out very easy. I still think a catch pan under it and you will be fine.

I think you're right Mike. I'll just turn off the batteries and get a good sized catch can and go for it.
