Default fueling

Anyone else have problems getting fuel? :?
I have an 05 2500scr that has to be fueled painfully slow. All hoses are routed from the factory. Using my air compresser I have blown out the vent and vent hose. . I have taken the hose off the tank and found no obstructions in the hose or the tank. I have been told it's a design flaw, but I can't believe all Maxum's are like this. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi welcome to the zoo....I don't have that problem ...check to see if there is a kink or dip in the fuel line to the tank..it should be fairly straight and not have any dips in the line...of course the vents should be clear and have a free flow...

check your fuel line for any of the above....hope this helps....

How slow is 'painfully slow'? Are you fueling up at the same place every time? Is it a marina?
It seems like forever when I try to top my tank off so that it doesn't geyser on me.

The fuel and vent lines are factory installed. I pulled the vent line apart and blew in each end and into the tank.
"Painfully" slow is basically a trickle to keep it from spitting back. And I never fill it completely full. Usually 30-40 gals when it gets below half tank.
I fuel at 3 different marina's and have the problem to some extent at each one. I am going to try another one on this next outing to see if there is any change.

might try to 1) have someone stand on the bow while fueling...this will force the fuel fwd in the tank..and the air bubble towards the back...that way there shouldn't be a blockage of the tank inlet to keep the fuel from kicking back.....but make sure your fuel line from the tank inlet to the tank top is fairly straight......
