    Can't get fuel in my Triton

    I can only get about 7 gal of gas in my 2001 Triton Tr19. I believe the tank holds 46 gal. I read some posts at another site that said to check the vent line. So I've been trying to get access to the vent line but I can't get to it. It seems the seats are holding the panels in place. Can anyone tell me how to get access to the fuel tank and vent line so I can see if there is a kink in the vent line or some other problem.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    No suggestions giving so I went and tried to get access again. Found 3 long screws on both the driver and passenger side. Removed those and 4 more screws from the seat back panel. Got the seats out of the way, and found 7/8 full tank of gas!! Took the float out and it appeared it was hung up. So all the time I had a full tank of gas and I thought I was almost empty. Put it all back together and went fishing. Caught 4 with one being just under 4 lbs. All on wacky worm watermelon candy. Caught near 360 bridge and in Bull Creek and water by the Austin Country Club.

    I'm happy again.
