Thread: Adding second fuel fill location on TIGE R20

    Adding second fuel fill location on TIGE R20

    We have a 2011 R20 which only has one fuel fill location. Its on the left side and my truck fill is on the right. A pain to fuel up when there's a lot of traffic at the gas station. The boat hull has the molding for the second fill location and I was thinking of adding it in. Is it as simple as it looks. Drill the hole, install the piece, connect the house and Y it into the existing line at the tank.

    Has anyone done this before? Any help would be appreciated before I take a hole saw to the hull.

    Never done it but ya it shouldn't be that hard. I think to be truly EPA compliant you would need to add some kind of device to the ne fill hose so that it's not just vented to atmosphere, but that's just if you are a stickler for the rules.
    When you lift up the floor you should have an extra plastic tube that comes up off the tank, still molded closed. You will have to lop off the end of it as well. I would be very careful about getting plastic shavings/debris in the tank while doing so. Ot you could try and Y into existing hose.
    Otherwise, it should just be a hole saw, and reverse drill the gel and countersink where the screws would attach the new fill port.
