yes it is me again looking for help. I am ready to install and plum the gas tank on the 1974 vw dune buggy project and need some help with the vent hoses on the tank and where they go on a dune buggy. There is the line under the tank which i am using braided gas line from the gas tank to a fuel filer then on to the motor. Top side i have the filler spout then two vent hoses. Next to the filler spout there is a 5/8 connector i think for one vent hose, then on the left side there is a much smaller vent connector that is 3/16, the help i need is where on a dune buggy do the two vent hoses from the gas tank go to? Any help would be greatly appreciated. i am still in the learning stages and this is not covered in books or on the web, the gas line yes but not vent hoses. thanks again for your time take care

Pat

There's a charcoal canister under the right rear fender on a 74. The fuel vapours leave the tank, through the long hoses, into the canister, and then sucked into the engine through the intake. I've blocked off all of those hoses on my daughters 74, and put on a vented gas cap. Seemed to be the easiest way of dealing with it.
Here's a Samba link with lots of info.
