Baja sits for 2 weeks go to start it upa nd it has lots of trouble on many tries. Check gas level in poly gas tank and try starting it with the cap loose. With this tank, does the vacuum that developes in the tank prevent gas flow after periods of sitting? Because after we tried it again with the cap on loose it fired right up.
