Open your front fuel bowl and take a peak inside. Stir around in the
bottom with a small screwdriver. Lots of fine brown powder in the bottom?
That's your problem. Clean it out, as a temprary fix and to convince
yourself that this is in fact the problem.
This stuff is so fine that it goes through your fuel filter. I have a new
tank, but it came with some specks of rust already installed.
I am going to try a super fine filter as sold by Summit racing. I'll clean
out the fuel bowls, install the filter, then check again after a while.
If this works, I'll let the list know.
