I just got back from Fresno where it's 112 degrees. I ran my A/C all the way into my garage and my temperature gauge showed 230 degrees when I shut it off. I lifted my hood, removed my air cleaner assembly, and observed my Holley. After about five minutes I suddenly heard a boiling sound and then whoosh. Gas came spewing out both of my bowl vents. After it settled down the gas was way below the sight glasses.

It seems today's gasoline has a very low boiling point when compared to the gasoline sold just 5 years ago. Boiling gasoline is being discussed in all of the other forums so it's a well known problem. People have tried installing large aluminum plates under the carburetors as well as wood or phenolic spacers and yet their gasoline still boils.
