Hissss---->>>> Laurie S.

I mentioned a 34-gallon tank install idea to you, but you never
responded.

My trunk is done, I don't want to start over with attempting a 34-gallon.
I'll live with the 22-gallon tank. What would a 34-gallon tank come out of
?

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
enough...

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...

It's an old road racer's trick that you don't see much any more,
although I saw several of these done at a shop I used to hang out at
during high school. Basically, you separate the lid from a stock tank
and attach another lower tank on top. Presto! Two 17-gallon tanks
becomes one 34, and right up the alley for anyone looking to
participate in these long-tour events so popular these days. The pic
above is a Cougar done that way. Just got it today and it reminded me
of what I mentioned to you.

I've had the same problem for years and the solution was to find the
handleful of stations that don't have that dopey spring on the front of the
gas spigot.

I'll need to do more research on this. There may be one just over the
county line or something, but I think it's the entire metro area. It
drives me insane. I have been going to the most expensive station in
the area because it's on the side of a steep hill, so I can point the
nose down, but they have the -worst- dopey springs of any of them.

I've also debated permanently mounting my gas cap (thieves show up
everywhere here) and reconfiguring the inlet inside the trunk. I used to
open the trunk of my 73 to toss the gas cap in there so I didn't forget it
while refueling and spent a lot of time eyeballing it. My 69 is very similar
just has a wire securing the gas cap to the car. Just need a donor inlet
some hose, clamps, and some time.
