MG MGF Technical - Fuel tank vents

So how do I unblock the fuel tank vent line that a Rover-trained chimp put together wrong?

Usually simply untwist it.
Paul Nothard

Anywhere in particular I need to look? (and please don't say "Under the engine cover")
Bob again

Is it the vent line or the main filler pipe?

If the latter (often twisted) then it is under the air filter (a good excuse to remove and replace with a K&N). I did mine when changing the filter and mad a huge difference on filling.


Paul, no idea! I think the main fill line is pretty unrestricted. The occasions I've had the engine cover off it all appears ok.
Already got a K&N anyway!
