Huh? Whhhat...?

What's a vapor lock? What's, "winding the fuel line"? What are, "bubble opportunities"?

... I'm sure whatever you were thinking would help your ugh.. Vapor lock problem?
I'm honestly confused.





... But seriously though, what's a vapor lock? And if I have to start thinking like this on the forum, this won't be fun anymore.
