Whilst you may not need it as such it does no harm to ensure the tank is well vented. Something like either an inline fuel filter would work, or a crankcase breather adapted to fit would look better.
    Great advice like always! Cheers Taurus

    Fuel return hose

    Going to fit my new pump/fpr this Friday, I noticed the fpr has no fuel return connector (only fuel in and fuel out to the carbs).

    What should I do with the standard fuel return line as it will just look messy laying about the bay, can I cut it back and blank it off or does it act as a vent for the tank?
