As I say 'design fault'! Tank's in, deck's down, console's in .... It's how it was sadly.

Unless they have extended to vent inside with a tube to the forward section? I'll see how much fuel I can get in....

Probably not the HSE approved method of checking you've got them the right way round but if you take the filler cap off (DO NOT DO THIS WITH THE FILLER CAP IN PLACE) and, with a bit of tube blow into the fittings you'll find one blows bubbles (the lift pipe) and one doesn't (the breather.)

sorry for slight these work well?

the ribcraft has a terrible design on the overflow as it throws fuel right at your face/onto pump if filling up on trailer, this would stop it if it works well?
