    Gas spits out of fuel tank, can' fill

    Think I may have a problem with my fuel tank venting, or the "breather." Any suggestions? Can I find this part anywhere? Only thing I find is tank and sending unit online. Is there an easy fix?

    Thanks!

    Not really a breather. You have a line going to the charcoal canister for venting. What year car?

    Not sure if 80 is the same. I assume you are talking about the rollover valve. You may find one at the local parts store as i think the later chrysler cars have a similar valve that works. I believe there are some on ebay too.

    Mine does this, too. I hate it, but I've never found out why so I can't fix it. Breather from charcoal to tank seems ok. If there is a rollover valve that's something to think about. I assumed there was a breather up the fill neck as well, but I don't know for sure.

    There was a lengthy discussion on this exact problem over on FMJ Body Only.

    Is this an updated version of the site? It looks like the exact same setup. I just signed up there too! Thanks!

    I believe it's the same software. There was some kind of a problem that ate the data. We keep on runnin', same old community of good people.

    Yeah, there's a breather in the top of the tank. Not sure if they are available, but they get clogged and then not only does the tank burp when filled, they suck a vacuum when running long periods and lean out the fuel ratio too.
