Hello, excited to use the forum. Just bought my first ski a '96 Polaris slt 700 -Waiting form manual before I take it out. First question. When I open the seat cover over the engine, notice gas odor, not too strong but very noticeable. Also notice it when I open the front hatch storage. Is this normal? Thanks - Ed

Farily normal for any ski to get that gas smell inside the enclosed hull. You might want to look at the fuel lines and around the carb. to be sure there are no leaks just to be safe. Also not a bad idea to pull the seats when you fill it up, and to let it air out before you crank it.
