    there would likely be fumes and a little gasoline coming thru the vent hose...
    That situation can exist for sure. There's no backflow valve in my vent tubing... and it does connect at the "top" near the filler tube connection point.

    The filler tube on a stock tank (sedan or wagon) is not IN the top of the tank, but instead comes into the tank at the top of the SIDE of the tank, so if you fill your tank absolutely FULL, the filler tube will have several inches of fuel in it as well, and of course the filler tube is not exactly vertical either...
