Is that vent line just overboard and set up so the exit is "above" the tank when inverted? I am going to be doing my first gasser this year and was wondering what to do with the vent line.

Is the way you have it routed with several bends important?

Do you avoid having a NRV that might fail by routing it that way?

Electric flying is pretty much seeing how close to a dead short you can run without setting it on fire.

Re: Gas tank - two line plumbing plan

John, if you gain contaminants from your fuel dot. Then they will be "filtered" from entering your tank. Remaining in the carb line, being filtered by the in-line filter. Never to be extracted when de-fueling your tank at the end of the day. Personally I see no need for your fibre filter clunk.
As others here I "DO" use, and beleive in, in-line filters (serviced annually, or more frequently).
