Wow, my gas cap exploded on my X300. Here are the circumstances.
Mowing for 2 hours through somewhat thick grass.
Half a tank of gas left.
Just completed a couple of donuts at full speed while mowing around a 20 foot diameter tree.
The gas cap exploded into 3 pieces and flew about 30 feet, probably right over me.
Has anyone heard of this happening?. I will probably stop every 20 minutes or so now to check. Needless to say I am really gun shy. There is nothing on this mower between the gas cap and my head.
The dealer say that the air hole in the cap being plugged would not cause this because it only allows air in.
