I swapped the one way valve to the back tank and put the vent tube to the front, coupled with the adhesive sealant etc I would like to think we are sorted.

We were planning on leaving Oaxaca tomorrow however the teachers strike here means the city will blockaded at every exit and the city centre blockaded so we ain't goin anywhere !!!

Time to catch up on trip reports!!!!!
Are you guys just running an open vent tube off the cap?
That's the recommendation to keep the tank from pressurizing?

Just installed a Safari on my SE and don't need it spewing fuel in the middle of Nevada--thinking preventative maint.
