    does the fuel tank cap have a good seal? are the head bolts tight?

    Did you check the trans and diff oils too. ya need to make sure you put spring air in your tires too, and when summer gets here make sure to put summer air in them.

    My guess is the siphon tube on your fuel tank is blocked with mold flash. Has same issue on Volcano SV Pro. I removed the fitting and carefully cut off the plastic elbow. I could then clean out the siphon tube. I then rethreaded the fitting back onto the tank. It now is vertical which means the fuel line will not route so close to the gear. Much better IMHO
