Having troubles with gas tank.
i have and 1930 ford coupe and i' am building it as a (rat rod) i build a gas tank for the car, but now when i put gas in tank and leave it in the shop over night the next day when i go in shop i smell a lot of gas fumes and it is coming from the gas tank where it is (vented). I have a vent hose on tank, do i need a return line going back to the fuel-pump? I have one line from tank going to the fuel pump do i need a return line to fuel pump? I do not have a return line on fuel pump just the gas line. i need help. thank you

Does the tank have the vent on top the tank or is the cap vented? If the tank has a vented cap then the pressure is released as it builds, as opposed to a vent on the top that has vapors going out 24/7. A real light psi check valve would let out the pressure as needed if it is built on the top. The vented cap is the easiest way to go. Unless your carb has a return line to tank I wouldn't worry about a return to tank line. good luck on the Rat
