<VV> Fuel leakage

Fuel slosh can be a problem. For Autocross, the short-term solution can be  
to stuff something underneath the filler cap. Something that "slows down 
the  fuel hitting the cap, but doesn't seal off the air flow. Make sure it is  
something that you can remove! Also, to keep the leakage invisible to  the 
outside world, and the gas off your fender paint, stuff several red shop  
rags under the gas door, in essence filling the space over and around the  
cap. That will keep it from seeping out, especially when you have enough gas in 
 the tank to keep the pump submerged at all times <grin>

I had  issues sloshing gas out the fill on right turns, and fuel

(in-tank pump sucked air, injectors didn't like it at  all)

does a stock Corvair tank ever have issues spilling fuel at the  cap?
