Question SAFETY CONCERN ?? 2017 G4-850 Fuel tank pressurized

Was out riding this weekend and took a break pointed slightly down hill. After a few minutes I started smelling gas and saw fuel pouring out of one of the holes above my left side shock (vent hole?).

I turned the sled up hill and it stopped then I released the pressure from the tank. I took a run up the the hill and when I got back to the bottom I opened my gas cap and the tank was pressurized again.

Is this normal?

I've noticed sitting down on the seat applies pressure to the fuel tank. This constant repetition of sitting up/down likely is the reason for pressure buildup.

My wife's sled did the exact same thing one day. Turned it sideways and released cap and it quit. Haven't had mine do it.

Same deal here. I took the valve out of the tank to inspect it. It allows air to come in but not out. It is the same green rubber valve they use in the oil cap. Every time I stop now I unscrew the cap and let the pressure out.

Mine was doing same thing for the first time yesterday in wolf creek pass, it was hot out so I don't know if that had something to do with it.

The vent that is on the clutch side above the shock has always leaked on the XM and 850 from what I've seen. It only does it when it's sitting on a steep pitch pointing down. My XM seemed to do it worse though. You could watch it pour out. My 850 is more of a drip. The 850 is the first sled that I've noticed the cap flying off from pressure. Mine does it too....

Thanks for the replies. I hadn't noticed it before so I wasn't sure if I needed to get it checked out. I was in the 50's so that may have had something to do with it.

My 850 smells like raw fuel alot.. usually facing downhill, Lots of pressure in the fuel tank even when not sitting on it..
I find myself unscrewing the fuel cap everytime I stop subconciously.?.
Did it facing uphill 1 time...
DOH!!!!!!
My XM did it also just not as bad

Anytime I take off my cap and not holding on to it tight it shoots out of my hands into the air
