We are going through a website transition, and some things might look a little different in the next few weeks. We are working on building out the system design to reflect the changes being made on our website. Please bare with us during the transition!
2015 Sweetwater Model 2286 gas tank is not big enough for the gas nozzle used when filling
We just purchased a 2015 Sweetwater Model 2286. Filled it at a gas station on the way to the lake (discovering the problem) and then again at another location on the lake... confirming it was the boat, not the stations issue since the 2nd locations nozzle wouldn't fit either. It only goes in a little way -- not far enough and you still have to actually HOLD it there and cannot just put it in, set it and let it fill.
This forces the filler to squat (when on the lake/dock filling) and hold the gas filler and handle the entire time. And since you can't fill it quickly, it's a ridiculous amount of time to try to hold it.
Is this normal? The dealer is telling us they changed it in 2014 (per "government" requirements) so they cannot do anything about it.... BUT, our new car doesn't do this. Also, someone with a 2014 Aqua Patio doesn't have this issue either.
Anyone else out there with this problem - or Godfrey.... can it be fixed? I can guarantee we won't be buying another if it remains like this and other than this, so far we really like the boat.
