    I have an Aeromotive 20 gallon fuel cell. I'm not sure how to plumb and run the vents on the left side of the tank. Can I Tee them both together like shown and run one line out the trunk floor? Maybe at the end of that vent line I'll put a breather filter...How do you guys do it?

    I would just use one of the vents and cap the other. There's no need to have both connected.

      You sure one isn't a vent and the other a return line. Look for a check ball in one of them. That's the vent line.

      u can buy a check ball fitting for the vent. If u rolled the car upside down, the gas would run all over the place w/ it done like ur drawings. I like to run the vent up hi in the trunk w/ a couple of coils at the top, then back down thru the floor to underneath. Won`t pour out that way either.

      Thank you that's what I've been finding out. Here's one I could do something similar, and cap one of those, like mentioned.

      Thanks Rob, they are both the same. This is a drawing from Aeromotive.

      Come to think of it, I have a new uninstalled roll over valve in my tool box. I t is the type to be mounted upside down too. I don't need it tho.

      Well here's an update. I ran the lines and got most of it done. If it's wrong and I'm a complete moron let me know, I'll change it.
