Diesel Deckplate ERUPTION

I too have encountered this and it was due to the high flow rate on the diesel nozzle, which was set to deliver tons of fuel to thirsty Sportfish boats. The cool fuel hitting the warm tanks at that rate, the vents couldn''t vent fast enough, thus the eruption. I never did find a soultion other than really trying to just open the flow slowly and try to slow down the flow and finding another fuel source.
