    Charcoal inside gas tank?

    If charcoal dissolved in gas (or its vapour) your canister content would be considered a consumable... which it likely is not. You could also possibly get sediment in your gas depending on where you source your gas. You shouldn't be sucking fuel from the very bottom of the tank and you're...

    Coolant Routing - Another possibility?

    SL-C color

    It doesn't have to happen to everyone. There's lots of successful dip stories I'm sure. It's happened to a couple of people in my circles and there's enough other instances documented on the internet to flag the issue. But I'm not here to post googled links of dip horror stories. Oh alright...
