I have a 1930 Model A with two 8 gal fuel tanks and electronic cutover switch. The necks to the tanks bend at almost 90 degrees before the tank. I cannot dispense more than 2/10 ths of a gallon of fuel before the fuel 'spits' back at me and causes a spillage. I understand that the reason is that there does not appear to be anywhere for the displaced air from the tank to go. Does anyone have a solution other than dispense the fuel as slowly as possible? Thank you. (First time posting to the forum!)
FYI, I have determined that the trick to filling gas tanks: keep fuel dispenser nozzle level and pointed to the rear of the car. SLOWLY dispense fuel.The key was finding out where the gas tank was located in relation to the tank neck, and determining the angle of the neck into the tank. The above description of the solution is a result of allowing the gas to slowly travel along the natural contour of the neck into the tank.
