The new blend of gas out there with its lower boiling point has created many embarrassing moments for me.
When you pull up to a stop light and your car stalls, then you have to wait for a while for the engine to cool down and start the car again. I have tried to have better engine air flow but still limited to cooling the engine bay.

What are others doing to resolve the Vapor lock issue with this new stupid blend of gas and Carb engines....

Any advice is greatly appreciated

electronic fuel pump to a bypass fuel pressure regulator, it keeps the fuel moving and prevents the heat soak
