Simple fix for fuel tank filler vent problem

Hi All,

I've come across so many great suggestions here, and now I might have one to return.

The fuel tanks on my 1997 F250 had a severe venting problem, where I could only fill them at a very slow rate. Too fast, and the fuel would foam up and overflow at the filler port. Looks like a lot of other folks have had this problem too.

Here's an easy fix that worked great for me. It doesn't require adding any parts, or removing the fuel tanks. Since I can't post photos yet I threw together a webpage with photos showing the modifications: The page is at lod.org/misc/DieselFillerFix.html

Sorry if this mod has already been posted, but I didn't see anything similar. Let me know if it works for you!
