No doubt, improper venting, or in the case of a fully smogged USA spec vehicle, improper charcoal canister system operation can cause a vacuum in the tank and fuel starvation. However when that occurs there is fuel starvation under all conditions, especially high demand such as wide open throttle acceleration. This rig goes like a bat out of heck when you romp on it, runs better than any other 2F powered cruiser I have ever owned, except when idling coming to a stop or idling when pointed downhill. There is something keeping the fuel level too low in the bowl even though the float is adjusted properly, and I strongly suspect that the low fuel level in the bowl is related to the pointed-downhill when idling stalling issue.
