Anybody know if I will have any problems with a sumped gas tank?

Need to tow it down to recon and I dont want to fail because of it. I re-routed the fuel pickup to the top already.

I called before, but they wouldnt give me an answer without looking at the car. I took it down yesterday and they didnt even give it a second look.

I did find some federal regulation saying that a fuel pickup lower than the full fuel level is illegal though... for commercial vehicles... which i guess is totally different.

https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/regulations/title49/section/393.67

Im thinking to put it back down... but I can see how in a rear collision the car could go up in flames.

A rear collision can put any car in flames... take a look are rear collision pics form Crown Victorias

Dont sweat it.

The Commercial regulations have to do with the volume of liquid they carry. It prevents them from losing all the fuel in case of line failure.
