Question about Honda Chipper Blower and Vac: 5.5 Hp Gas
My new Honda blower will not run for long unless the petrol cap is slackened or removed.
Further to the previous response of checking for bent fuel lines. It sounds like the breather is faulty, this is integrated in the fuel cap, as you screw it down the rubber/cork gasket makes a tight seal preventing spillage but the breather allows for neutral pressure inside the tank, with fuel being sucked out it creates a negative pressure in the tank or a vacuum causing the engine to be starved of fuel as it can't draw more fuel. Check the cap for dirt or grime and possibly give it a good rinse in benzine before trying again, otherwise try and get a replacement cap. Hope this helps.

Check the fuel tank for any vent lines or ports. Make sure they are all clear of dust and dirt.
