The entire fuel line is brand new, and I tried to unscrew it but it wouldn't budge :/
The tent vent was fully open and I even took the filler cap off as well but it made no difference, could it be a faulty fuel bulb? I'm fairly sure that it is not a problem with the engine side of things however I will still look at the fuel filter and replace if I can't unscrew it.
