Hopefully someone can help me with a vacuum problem on my 40.

I swapped a 2fe and put a new fuel tank behind the rear axle for my fj40. I have an issue where the vacuum port on my fuel tank gets splashed with fuel often, which then pulls fuel up to the engine bay through the vacuum line.

To solve this, I want to install a simple canister between the fuel tank and the charcoal canister, mounted as high as possible, to allow fuel to be pulled into, then have it drain back to the tank. The purpose would be very similar to the fuel separator used in cruisers.

On the passenger side rear wheel well of my 40 sits this emissions control vacuum tank. I’d like to use it for the purpose of keeping fuel from going forward to the engine bay.

Does anyone have a diagram of what this tank looks like inside? Could it be used as a fuel/vapor seperator?

Hopefully you have the skid plate for it if yuor installing it in the original location. Can't help with how can be used. Over the years collected a number of the skid plate but not the tanks.

For reference, here is the diagram of the fuel tank vent system I am considering to follow.

If I can't make the factory emissions tank work (which may be a bad idea anyway, because the vapor lines come into the cabin), I am thinking of using a Toyota fuel filter, such as 23300-31160, mounted in the rear wheel well instead. Thoughts?
