Im thinking that when its full and the gas swells in the tank it will still push gas out the vent even w/ it being 2 feet above the gas level,or even a loop, but the fuel filter catch might work, but it might restrick flow of air when filling, or when the filter would have gas in it and keep it from breathing?
