    Angry summit fuel cell

    I have a summit 8 gallon fuel cell in my race car. Twice I've run out of gas. Once driving to tech and once on a full blast. Both times there was still 3 gallons left in the cell. I took out one of the 2 fabric slosh stoppers after the first time. Then it did it again with one still in the tank. My pump is an amerimotive 2000 and has the bypass that sends over pressured fuel directly back into the top of the tank.The pump is lower than the tank so it should gravity feed with no problem. I put a #10 fitting in tank where a # 8 was, to supply more fuel to pump. The cell has a sump built into the bottom of the cell. Can anyone help me with this annoying problem?

    The return fuel is aerated and the pump is them pumping bubbles...
    If you think nobody cares, try missing a payment...
