The fuel fill fitting  allows for venting below the  fill cap.
While the tank is being filled, the air displaced by the fuel
escapes through  the fuel  fill/vent.   This reduces  the
amount of fuel spillage.  Always open the lid slowly to
allow air to escape. See Figure I1.
Gasoline fuel systems used in Four Winns® boats are
designed to meet or exceed the requirements of the U.S.
Coast Guard, the National Marine Manufacturers Asso-
ciation, and the American Boat and Yacht Council in ef-
fect at the time of manufacture.
Check Valve prevents
spills from fuel surge.
Tanks on Four Winns® boats are located forward of the
aft bilge compartment below the floor.  Please see the
Sundowner™ specifications included in  your owner’s
packet for fuel  tank capacities or  visit our website  at
Baffles allow air ventilation
but trap water
Splash Shield sends overflow
from vent back to tank
Use only clean fuel of the type and grade recom-
mended by the engine  manufacturer.  Engine
damage resulting from  the use of a lower  oc-
tane gasoline is considered misuse of  the en-
gine and will void the engine warranty. Refer to
the section  on Gasoline Requirements  in the
engine manual for information on octane specifi-
Figure I1:  Fuel Fill
The gasket  seal on the  fuel fill cap  assists in sealing
when closed.  A missing or damaged gasket can allow
water on the surrounding surfaces to run into the tank.
Periodically inspect the gasket and the fuel deck  plate
for damage.
A.   System Testing
All gasoline fuel systems have been  factory inspected
and pressure tested in  accordance with regulations in
effect at the time of manufacture. Additionally, each fuel
tank must pass rigid tests and inspections performed by
the fuel tank manufacturer.
DO NOT confuse GAS deck fill plate with WA-
TER or WASTE  deck plates.   Deck fill plates
are labeled according to the intended use.
Prior to taking delivery, it is important that a full inspec-
tion be  made of the  entire fuel  system by the  selling
dealer.  An entry on the Four Winns® Pre-Delivery In-
spection Form portion of the Warranty Registration Card
will attest to the dealer’s performance of this service.
Spilled fuel is a fire hazard. DO NOT overfill or
overflow the tank, or allow fuel spills into the hull
or bilge.   If spillage occurs, clean  up immedi-
ately and dispose of soiled rags/towels in a pro-
per container.
B.   Fuel Fills
Fuel fill deck plates are located either on the aft deck or
side decks, and are marked “GAS”. To open, insert the
deck plate key into the holes on the cap and rotate coun-
terclockwise.  A bead chain connects the cap to body
to help prevent loss  overboard.  Be sure to utilize the
proper type and grade of fuel as recommended by the
engine manufacturer. SeeSectionI-3foradditionalinfor-
When fueling at a marina, DO NOT overfill. Fuel
may spill into the water.
