That's very cool, but weird. I thought they were specific to Shelby,
and only had the in-trunk gas cap and splash guard. I wanted a 34-gal
tank a while back, but have no practical use for it. The trunk is small
I do have a practical use for another way to fill the tank, since the
damned vapor reclaim things on the pumps here often make the gas splash
back on my new paint. I have to invert the handle, push it all the way
in, go slowly and it doesn't spray at me.
If I had the right tools, I'd fabricate something to mate to the back of
the car using gas cap "ears", a big o-ring and a newer filler neck, that
would stick out and away from the back of the car. I thought of trying
to market this idea to the aftermarket, for ALL cars with this design,
but I doubt it would ever be approved for production and sale to the
masses. And if it were? Someone would sue you for millions on day one.
I've found a few stations around my house where I can fill it pointing
downhill, but even that is not fool-proof...
