Gas Fume Vent

Surely I'm not the first to address this problem, but haven't been able to find any pictures or posts on how to fix. My Solution: Add a quick connect to the gas tank, run it to an external vent fitting. Keep the tank cap-vent closed while on board.

Vent and Fuel Line Quick Connect. I hate having extra clutter running around in the cockpit.

Looks good; You might want to include a loop in vent line.--Dale

Where you vent out the line, you need to bring the hose higher then the vent ,before you vent out. leave a loop, so anything going in the vent has to go up before traveling down the vent-Dale

Thought about doing something similar, but just using a barb fitting on the gas cap vent. I decided to leave the fuel tank in the cockpit under a cover, and keep the extra storage space available underneath.

Not as clean as your setup, but it suits my needs.
