  • loud humming coming from gas tank

    2001 XStar 330hp. people kept complaining about a humming noise from the back of the boat and i thought it was just the air screen/filter. The other day i took it out i noticed a that humming that got really loud when
    I took the gas cap off. is that the fuel pump?
    I'm Dreaming of summer right now.

    Probably, but pull the backseat out and put your hand on the tank and the fuel pump module. If its making noise I would go ahead and replace it or at least the pump.
