Just picked up brand new 2017 F18. Anyone else have problems putting gas in their F18? When I put gas in it keeps backing up and spilling out. It took me over 20 minutes to fill th tank. I unscrewed the vent as well but it keeps backing up and spilling out of gas fill. It will only take in ounces at a time and I have to keep stopping to let it drain down. Wondering if anyone else having this problem or is there something wrong with my brand new boat.

Thanks in advance for any information

Not sure of yours
But my 2452 some pumps I have to turn the nozzle upside down. Has to do with it hitting the inlet just the wrong way.

I had the same problem. The vapor vent was too close to the water line, so when I turned starboard water would go into the vent. Then make its way to the vapor canister and saturate the media in the vapor canister. After about 6 times to the dealer, they moved the vent above the rubber bumper, near the cleat, replaced the canister again and added a loop in the vapor line. Fills fine now. The water from the canister finally made it to my tank, so they pumped out about 10 gallons of gas and half a gallon of water. Plan to add a gas/water separator soon. Bad design I guess. Supposedly I am the only one who has had this problem, per Bayliner. I don't believe that...
