    Anybody have baffles in their fuel tank to keep fuel from sloshing around in corners? I was thinking of stuffing some solvent/hydrocarbon resistant open-celled foam in my tank…

    The metal tanks with a valve at the bottom of the tank should have a baffle around the fuel pick up point. The plastic tanks that feed out the top have a weighted pickup tube and no need for a baffle. Just make sure the tubing for the pick up is pliable.

    I was thinking about problems with extra weight transfer rather than fuel pick up issues.
