Default Re: Custom Fuel Tank, Gas Tank

I was going to use a check (one way valve) on my tank for a vent too but didn't. At first it seemed great because it would let air into the tank and wouldn't let gas out. Then I realized that if the tank sits in the sun or something then it could build pressure and possibly explode. Instead I used a regular brass barb and coiled a piece of fuel tubing so if fuel tried to come out it would have to go through the coiled tubing first. Some have used a fuel filter on the vent tubing so if gas sloshed out it would get cought in the filter. If this is clear as mud ask for clearification. Sometimes I am not the best at putting my thoughts into words.
