I considered that, but that is not logical. Think about this:
What would happen then when you fill up your tank, and drive straight
through untill the tank is empty. When there is no ventilation the tank
would shrink. Wouldn't it?
( thanks for answering by the way )
It has to have a way equilize the pressure as it pumps fuel out of the
tank, that is true, but I doubt it uses a simple "vent" like an old
carbuerated vehicle would. I think it has some kind of valving and a
feedback system from the injection?
Wish someone more knowledgible would chime in here and say me from
it is i bet vented
but is made to stand a little pressure and vacuum.
this is so when the tank is 1/2 full and it goes from cold to hot & back
with the weather you do not starve the motor nor flood it<gas> the
my guess there is a small spring check valve and a line running to a
charcoal canister some were.
the case, minus a few cans!
