Hi, as my MM1000 lives under a carport on my drive I fitted a lockable petrol cap for security, but now I have a problem with the tank pressurising, could somebody tell me how to fix this problem.
Thanks, Bernard.

I see your choices are a different cap, drill a small hole in the cap, or attach a vent to the fill pipe. If you drill the cap, it will probably entail a hole in the inner cap and one in the outer cap. If the are offset, there will be less chance to splash out. I think someone posted a cap recently that had the second hole outside of the gasket but still on the underside. You have to evaluate the construction of your cap to determine what will work.

Revert to you old cap.

It's cheaper to replace a gallon of petrol
Than it is to replace the tank.

The popular way to nick petrol is to
drive a nail into the tank from underneath.

Chicken wire scrunched up and pushed down the filler pipe prevents you putting a syphon tube down, but doesnt restrict the flow of fuel.

What's a typical tank size on new cars in England. Isn't the 7 gal Minor tank slim pickings? Or are new cars with their high mileage have the same "Big Car" feature?

Check your Minor sales literature for "Big Car" features.

They probably only want it to fuel their scooters.

Apparently our illiterate press call's 'em Mopeds.

Recorded "Moped" crimes increases by 3000 per cent over the last 5 years.
You can bet your bottom dollar, "Moped" crimes the police refused to record increased even faster..

More than 60 a day over the last year in London alone.
