I know this should be the case, but just spent a few minutes under
mine, and if the vents are all supposed to be in roughly the same area
of the tank as advised, I really can only see one (located
approximately above and forward of the main tank filler inlet).
Mine does seem quite an early efi. It still has the vertical grill,
for example, and has caught parts guys out before...
If I do end up finding a cheap multi-vent tank (assuming mine really
is single vent), can I just block up the extra vents?
