Default Fuel tank vapors

I am looking for a good way to slow down vapor build up in the tank, of course its from heat, any tricks out there. I have herd fuel filters, heat tape, longer lines but will any of these really have an affect.

They say an Exhaust Gas Cooler will help, so i bought one that Novarossi makes. I can't tell the difference.

Vapor is going to build up even with a cooler.. The only thing the cooler can do, is cool the exhaust gas.. It won't get rid of the noxious fumes entering the tank.

Most people i know with the Exhaust cooler have been able to get another 30 seconds of run time out of a tank. That isnt very much, but it was enough for me to be more comfortable with 10 minute pit stops.

You are aware that you are introducing those vapours into the tank from the pressure line coming of the pipe and that those vapours create the pressure that pushes fuel through the fuel line?
