Well, you would have to make sure your filler tube is vented.
You would have a tube coming up to your fill location. Somewhere
along that tube you would tee off for exhaust. The tee
should run vertical paralell with the filler tube for a few
inches before turning 180 degrees and exiting the aircraft.
That way you get a filler tube that doesn't drop all of your
fresh oil on the ground.
