    I have noticed two types of fuel fill pipes to the gas tank. I have seen some T/As with one and others with two. Mine has two. Does some one know why? IMG_0222.JPG

    The short pipe is not a fill tube; inside it contains 4 vent tubes which plug into the side of the gas tank. Each tube runs to a corner inside the tank. You should inspect the four hoses underneath, periodically.

    My tank was so rotten that when I tried to pull the hoses off the vent tubes one of the tubes ripped out of the tank and came off in my hand.

    Thanks Adam. I feel like a tool asking that question. The tank, trunk floor as well as the fuel lines are new(1 year old). I just noticed, after 59 years of age, that some e bodies don't have that vent tube there.

    I believe that vent pipe is probably a California emissions one. The standard one I usually see looks link another fuel line looped up the wheel well and back down into the tank.

    Both Adam & Rich G. are correct. What you have is the Evaporation Control System (E.C.S.).

    Do you think this is California emission related also?

    I am not sure about the 70's, but the 71's which were built in Michigan also have the same ECS system. So in 71 anyway, it wasn't just a California emission requirement.

    Thank you. It seems as I age I have problems researching things. I also have a 69 Dart 340. But things I used to know I forget. I still love my cars and wife(who would never let me sell my cars).
    I stumbled on this T/A. I bought it because I had one when I was younger. I love driving it. So please bear with me as I ask questions. Thank you for answering my questions.

    That made me laugh out loud. Because when I find the part after twenty minutes I gather up my tools and end up misplacing the part again.

    Hey there, congrats on buying your T/A. I longed for a T/A since I was a little kid and my dads boss had one of the nicest unrestored T/As in the country. A few years ago I got my hands on one and I love driving it. I wish it was EV2 but its FJ5 instead. The EXEMPT stickers on your car are indeed from California and its a program that was started in the early 80's. I hope that helps. Oh and here is a pic of my car and my friends.
