Strange liquid

#1 Unread post by HaydenJV » Wed Sep 05, 2018 2:50 pm

I have a '77 Honda CB550. The vent next to the fuel cap has been recently making a gargling sound and spewing a light-brown liquid from it. I've tried draining the hose line attached to the vent opening, but the noises and liquid still continue. What is happening? And how do I resolve it?
Thanks in advance,
The One and Only :frusty:

Rust mixed with gas perhaps?
