Good day! I have a 2001 Moomba Mobius LS (DD). My question is can anyone tell me about the gas vent. My gas cap does not have a vent, but there is a vent hole on the left side of the boat near the rear that will spew gas if I over fill during gas fill-up. Is this the gas vent? Also, the vent I am asking about sticks out about a 1/4 inch and is threaded (Male). Should it have a cap or cover? Your help is greatly appreciated!

Yes that is the vent. I have the same boat. I would recommend that you call your dealer and try to get a replacement vent to allow your tank to vent from the fill spout. I have had tons of trouble will getting water in my tank when I load the boat up with a lot of weight for boarding. I have also noticed it gets hit with a lot of water when driving through chop which most likely forces water into the tank.

Hope this information has helped you.

Not at the moment, my dealer just said they would send one my way. When I get it in i will let you know. Should be tomorrow.
