Fuel in the end of the vent line won't clog it. Unless the vent line goes
halfway down into the tank, this tiny pressure differential is readily
overcome. Re the "little holes" in the vent line: The vent line ends at the
first hole. What comes after that is pure ballast.

That is a GOOD idea. I wish you had told me three yeard ago <g>!
