Fuel venting is through a common vent system in the Velocity. The two main tanks and sump all come to a common point, run to the top of the firewall to avoid any fuel spillage, and then exit through the bottom of the plane. I’ve installed an option check valve to allow cabin air to enter the tanks and avoid tank collapse or fuel starvation in the event the external vent gets plugged by ice or wasp’s nest or something.
