I have searched to no avail for someone who has this same issue.
The 2015 SR20 that I fly Currently has 1300hrs, and maintains a tail to spinner warranty. The problem with my fuel cap leak developed around 1200. BOTH caps decided it was time to spew avgas from the cap through their little lock mechanism (about’ as fast as a can of spray paint out the wing). Cirrus has been very helpful, and warranty came through, covering the expense of a ‘fuel cap overhaul’ during the incident at 1200hrs immediately after the problem developed.
Fast forward to yesterday, The right cap decided it was time to trickle blue fuel through the cap lock seal, making it apparent that the cap is again -compromised (just 100hours after overhaul??). The new ‘leak’ is not as extensive as before. My Cirrus shop has been notified, and they take good care of us… I was to;ld to expect warranty to give me new caps. The Shop has “Never seen this issue before!”
I was told by my buddy to join COPA and ask wise counsel. Has anyone here have any experience with this issue? Is there something i’m doing wrong here?
Thank you for your time…
