    I just got a 16 gallon summit racing fuel cell. The drag racing style with the pickups just like this

    I am wondering if anyone with this style of fuel cell has had problems with fuel starvation on extreme angles and if adding fuel cell foam is a good idea.

    Thanks

    i ran 2 of them and never had a problem. foam will only help keep the fuel from slushing around the tank. i had the exact tanks and they were both foam filled. i would easily by them again.

    mount the tank at a little bit of an angle, like 10 degrees. It would make the sump in the back that much more effective. Foam will help with slosh, ya oughta have fuel down to the last gallon.
