Also try not to overfill the tank, some tanks will cause the engine to die when you close it. But you got it filling it while running is the whole idea. Wont hurt anything and its designed to work that way.

You really dont have to have it off the ground but it helps to so you can blip the throttle to keep it from loading up and causing a mysterious flameout, but unless you take along time to fill up the tank you will be ok, but during races its always best to pick the car up,
