Thanks for flagging this up. I have experienced exactly the same problem on my 331 this season although had not experienced it before. I have just checked the fuel supply cocks to the generator fuel filter and both cocks were open. Also, on the bulkhead adjacent to the filter brown is notice saying “The port fuel supply cock is normally kept closed”. Funny old thing! I think that the mechanic who serviced my engine and generator during the winter must have opened that cock not appreciating the effect it would have. I have now closed the Port cock and will keep it that way unless I need to draw fuel for the generator from the Port tank. I shall sleep better tonight as this was something that was bothering me.
