Every cage I've ever owned seems to have the pickup at the front/middle of the tank. Stupid GrandAm I had with the high-output quad-4 used to stall out under max acceleration with anything less than a 1/4 tank of gas. Freaking annoying. Great engine... stupid package.
Second gear, 6500rpm, front wheels starting to break loose, and the engine would go lean and stumble

Yeah! "Fuel pickups are in the back of the tank for a reason." There's more than one engineer out there that needs to be whacked over the head with that line.
