Re: How Much Has Fuel Prices Affected You?

The fuel tank cap Is not airtight so no significant air pressure really builds up using the bicycle pump that I was using.

At the time the bus was parked at an unfortunate nose down angle and I felt the positive pressure could not hurt and may have future possibilities for locating air leaks and fuel leaks.
