Keep engine running while upside down?

Anyone know what is a good method to keep your engine running if your car is upside down? I have heard stuff like longer exhaust-tank line or longer engine-tank line. Any suggestions?

A longer fuel line will solve that problem.

ROAR has a rule on fuel line length.

The best thing you can do is NOT REV it, its upside down so it's sucking air from the bottom of the tank, the engine has only got whatever fuel is in the line, when it went upside down, to burn.

Thought it was the opposite. Thanks.
