True, particuly if you... *Ahem* own an RC8 with the smokey tank.

Isn't that problem that is normally defined by air bubbles turning up halfway through a tank, not from a full tank?

lol exactly! Tanks are a funny critter. There are so many funky things that can happen during manufacture. I just don't trust tanks that much!

Tanks can have issues, but if you have no tuning problems and you get a few bubbles here and there, then don't worry about it. I have seen fuel lines routed along the pipe where it induces fuel vapor bubbles from heat and it causes issues, but thats another story.

I can't believe how many really prominent drivers route their fuel line near the pipe. There is no way in hell I would ever do that.
