Problem. The safari tank keeps feeding fuel up into the standard tank and pushing it out the over flow hose on the rally raid cap.

I turned the tap off on the Safari tank and this has stopped the vacuum as such. But when I turn the tap back on again, it's the same old problem. Just for the record I filled the Safari tank first and then the standard tank after. I'm thinking I should have done it the other way round. Anyone else had this problem or have a solution?
Did you miss the suggestion in the instruction manual not to open the tap on the Safari tank until you had traveled about 100 kilometers. If you have the tap open from the start it will do just what it has done.

My intuition nearly makes up for my lack of good judgement. Just installed my new trolling motor
