RE: [DML] Re: Fuel tank baffle



The return hose is quire important once the fuel level is at about a quarter
tank or less. Without it on hard acceleration or cornering the pump will
essentially ?suck wind?.

The effect of this is like the brakes suddenly applying, very hard, without
any warning. Ask me how I know this :)

When you get to that point you should have filled up miles ago...
I guess my point is the position of the baffle shouldn't matter at all 
if you keep the "correct" amount of gas in the tank.
One question about something I've noticed in this post and on DMCTALK 
is the return line feeding into the baffle... Does that really matter 
at all? The only slight advantage I could see is the fuel being 
slightly warmer coming straight back form the CV... I don't see why an 
extra line feeding the baffle on the original set up was worth adding 
or keeping?
