Pretty simple, if your fuel is clean you have trash in either your tank or lines. Is the rubber you're using compatible with Methanol?

Methanol ?

Hi,i dont think that methanol is your problem,i think its the ethanol added to most gas now.use sta-bil in all the tanks,1 oz to every 2 1/2 gallons.ive had many problems with this junk gas now.

Hold it, are we talking gasoline or methanol (alcohol)??

If it's gas, Stabil has two different additives, one for long term storage, one for ethanol treatment.
