Hello

I have something strange

When I'm sailing I got some diesel under the kitchen floor, mainly in the one where the water pomp is

It comes through the holes in the "floor plates"

I looked under the aft berth where the diesel tank lies: nothing
Under the engine: nothing
In the aft locker: nothing
Under the "garage" floor: nothing

I do not see and hole in the diesel pipe

Yesterday I cleaned all diesel under the floors
I'm in a harbour  and since yesterday nothing

So I assulme it comes when I'm sailing

To be tested tomorrow

But, does someone ever had this problem ?

Thanks for help

Camille

Hi Camille,

I have exactly the same problem with my 312 built in 2005.

Until now I was not able to find the leakage.

But I'm pretty sure that this happens only if I filled up completely the diesel tank.

This could be related with the tank ventilation pipe but I'm not sure of that.

Kind regards

Josť Pires

I had the same problem earlier this year after re-fueling.

Previously I have always filled the tank to maximum without a problem, but this day after sailing in a strong breeze and plenty of heel there was a smell of diesel in the saloon. I checked the tank first of all and although it wasn't blatantly obvious there was a leak, it did in fact turn out to be the service lid gasket which I repaired.

Hope this helps

Bob

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the tip.

Iím not sure if in my case the problem is the service lid. But it seems evident that this is correlated with re-fuelling the tank at the maximum. With almost none air inside the tank the pressure ups, maybe because the ventilation pipe is not working anymore (obstructed) and it leaks somewhere.

Iím going to tight all the fuel pipes and the service lid. But at the end, the pressure have to escape by somewhere...

Just a question, what kind of repair did you made to the service lid? Did you replace the gasket? Or you just tight the nuts?

Best regards

Hi Jose

I replaced the gasket and made a new one with "FUEL & CHEMICAL RESISTANT VITON RUBBER SHEET" purchased from eBay.

Hello

Let's suppose the diesel leaks via an overflow tube

Maybe it's possible to put this tube in a 2l plastic bottle

BUT

Where is this overflow tube ?
