Has anybody come up with a fix for the fuel tank venting system. I have two Zenith aircraft, a Zodic 601XL-B and a CruZer. I cut the vent opening at a 45 degree angle. But fuel leaks out on the ground with fuel tanks making turns taxing or steep banks. Really hard on paint. captmike_3715@hotmail.com

We have a CruZer and are going to cut and seal off the standard vent tube and put a new vent tube using the return line which will come out of the top skin similar to a Jabiru fuel vent. We think this will solve the fuel overboard problem
Thanks for the suggestion. My Stinson has vents that come out to the top of the wing.
