    On the drivers side motor bay where the charcoal fuel canister use to sit. I see the line coming up the inner fender. Somebody cut the line there and looks like they took their pliers and really narrowed the opening. I'm not looking to install the fuel canister but do think I need a roll over valve. What are you guys doing with this vapor line if your not running the canister. Also where and what valve are you running? Thanks Ricky

    That small line is a vapor return to the tank and the metal part starts back near the firewall.

    I'm stumped on the rollover valve also. Are you talking about a switch that shuts the electric fuel pump off in case of a rollover?

    Thanks Bandit723. Since my line is open and used to vent the tank the rollover valve serves a few purposes. It still vents the tank and keeps unwanted critters out of the line. It also keeps fuel from running out if car rolls over. I thought a lot of guys done away from canister and used them. Thanks Ricky

    If you road race the car, I can see the need for safety rules. For your car with the OEM tank, the tank being upside down isn’t going to dump gas everywhere. Surely not out of the vent line on the driver side. The main fuel line is more hazardous then that. However Be careful installing a vent in the engine bay. Venting fuel vapors in the engine bay doesn’t sound like a good idea...

    No these are not OEM. But some of the newer cars do use some type of rollover valve.

    from what I have read people vent them back by the fuel tank. I guess I could leave the line just in case but I doubt anybody will ever put a charcoal canister there again.
