thanks for the tip tideway. My tank is 70 litres and is build into the console. However, I assume your problem was due to you having a filler pipe? I will be filling mine up by sticking the fuel hose directly into the top plate so there will be plenty of room for the air to get in!

It look like I'm going to have to work out a way of reducing the 1/2inch connections down to 8mm.

Narcosis, where did you get the brass connector from? tek tanks?

You need to purchase two fittings, 12mm Male Hose connector and and 8mm Female Hose connector both using a 1/2 " BSP thread to link.

I bought my ones from a chandlery in Middlesex, but they used these guys.
