Default 8ight buggy tank size "Roar"

Could someone tell me how long of fuel line, with or without tank plug, with or without fuel filter will make it ROAR leagle (125cc)? I'm running in the Pro South race in a couple of weeks and I know they will tech all the cars. I want it to be exactly 125cc total. Please help.
Thanks

I am running pro series this weekend, using the plug, have a fuel filter, and about 6" of fuel line. Passed tech with no problems.

I run no tank plug and run my fuel line straight to the carb right beside the tank on both clips. Its always within 1-2 cc on the good side.

I would suggest keeping the tank insert with you at the event. When Carlton tech'd my 8 it was over by 3cc without the insert in there. I don't have excess fuel line, it comes out of the fuel line hole, runs along the side of the tank straight to the carb. He just asked that I put the insert in so there is no doubts in his mind. No prob for me.
