1200s use a positive pressure Fuel Tank Cap that seals the Fuel Tank and lets no fumes out. This fuel tank cap is not pressure vented.

Contents

Overview

All 1200s use a fuel tank cap without pressure relief. Pressure from the tank is relieved via the vent line.

Right: EVAPO type (vacuum relief type)

EVAPO means "Evaporative Emissions" - in other words, the gasoline fumes are not allowed to vent to the atmosphere, but only through the vent system. Australia utes from the 1980s are EVAPO, as are 1975 and newer 1200s in Japan market.

Non-EVAPO

The fuel filler cap is simple with a plain black rubber washer. has neither pressure venting nor vacuum relief. Venting takes place through a fuel loop hose connected to the tank. Fumes from the petrol tank go directly into the atmosphere. See Fuel Tank for details on the venting.

EVAPO models

EVAPO (emission controlled) models were fitted to all USA 1200s and newer Sunny Truck.

NOTE: early models (1970) may have been fitted with a non-relief cap. It is recommended to fit a relief cap.

The fuel filler cap should be sealed type. It does not let air out. But it does have a vacuum release valve to let air in. Perhaps it has the wrong cap. It should be more or less flat on the outside, with a nubbin on the inside.

Venting takes place with a vent line from the tank to the engine compartment, where it lets fumes into the crankcase to be 'stored' until the engine is started. Then the fumes are burned in the carburetor. See Emission Controls for details.

Newer models, starting with the 1973 B210, vent into a charcoal canister. But they use the same cap.

  2. Fuel tank filler cap
  3. The nubbin on the bottom is vacuum relief valve

Testing

For the EVAPO model:

  • You should not be able to blow air out throw the cap
  • You should be able to suck air in through the nubbin

  1. Wipe valve housing clean and place it in your mouth.
  2. Inhale air. A slight resistance indicates that the valve is in good mechanical condition. Note that, by further inhaling air, the resistance should disappear as the valve clicks.
  3. If valve is clogged, or if no resistance is felt, replace cap as an assembled unit.
