Default Re: fuel petcock does give enough fuel

I've had the same problem on 2 different builds. One thing that helps is to remove that little filter that's on the kit petcock. I always run an inline fuel filter, as do most people with MaBs. I'm also running an inline petcock after fuel filter (see pic). My tank has a 1/4" NPT nipple instead. has a real nice one, and you can also find them in hardware stores, as I did. It doesn't have to be special, but there's a lot of em out there better than supplied with kits.

Also, I recommend using good-quality SAE fuel line. Today's pump fuel is not kind to a lot of stuff.
