Hey, you're in the vehicle / car zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Cars / Trucks / Vans Category: Engine System

Problem:

Engine, with a carburetor system, is hard to start after filling up the gas tank.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

Solution:

 

In all likelihood, what you call filling up the gas tank actually is overfilling the gas tank, which is the cause of your engine's startup difficulty.  In overfilling your gas tank, the excess gas spills out into the charcoal canister of your vehicle's fuel evaporation system, preventing the canister from performing its essential function of capturing all fuel vapors that are found in the float bowl of the carburetor.  With the vapors unable to be captured from the float bowl by the charcoal canister, they develop in mass as a matter of physics so as to cause gas to be forcefully channeled into the air intake manifold, causing the flooding of the engine, and, thus, the difficult startup.

The lesson to be taken from this:  Be sure to not overfill your gas tank, and when possible, never aim to fill your gas tank always to the top.
