Do you have zip ties or hose clamps on all your fuel line connections? If not, it could be a small leak that you wont see. Also, if you leave the fuel cap loose, does it pressurize/vent? It sound like the ski is getting too much heat and causing the fuel to expand. Try leaving the seat off for more airflow into the engine compartment. Let me know if this works? I know its climate controlled, but heat causes the fuel to sell. Dont forget to check all your zip ties/hose clamps. Post results
