Re: pusher fuel pump

I don't have the specific answer to you problem, but I wonder if there is a check valve that could be installed in the fuel line that could help with this.
But no matter what, some fuel is going to evaporate in 2 week's time.
Any fuel left in my lawnmower is gone the next week, and that tank is sealed, but of course the cap has a small vent.
