My brother in law has a brand new Godfrey Poontoon boat. It has an outboard engine (Yamaha 90). The issue is it's pulling a vacuum on the fuel lines and the pump bulb is collapsing. It has the new EPA gas vapor system on it that has two check valves that only let pressure flow out but not in. When the boat uses fuel how is the loss of volume and subsequent negative pressure (vacuum) supposed to be compensated. The fuel cap appear to seal it off tight.

Thanks

Loosen the tank cap and see if the problem stops.

If he bought it brand new I'd be letting the dealer make any repairs as to not compromise the warranty.
