Gas Odor while Storing in Garage

Recommended Posts

First time having my own boat in the garage. I recently bought a 2015 Xpress jon boat with a 20hp Mercury, 4 stroke. There is a lingering gas odor. When I popped the cowl, I don't see any gas that has leaked anywhere. Is this normal, or should I have somebody check it over. Mechanically my skills are novice level.

2 suggestions: 1- Disconnect the gas line from the engine. second- Release the pressure from the gas tank. Do this before you garage the boat after fishing .      dada 1-23-18  4:16 PM

I did disconnect the fuel line. I did not release the pressure to the tank. I will probably do that this evening, crack the garage door, and run a fan for a couple days.

Agreed with Dada, you may have to release the pressure off and on during storage...dont forget the marine stabil or a like product...but .that is a whole different thread.
