Default Zenoah Gas Engine Fuel Problem

While running the Zenoah G270 in my 1/5 scale Touring Car, fuel is coming out of my vent line at the rear of the car. It appears that my fuel tank is being pressurized while running, but not at idle. What is causing this? And how can I remedy the problem? My car is running out of gas around 17-18 minutes and is unable to finish the 20 minute final. Please help.

John - see myself or Arnold next race. You need a reservoir to have the fuel drain back in. Dan has one mounted on his Contrast as well.

Do you guys not have return lines built into the tanks normally?
