i have never installed a fuel cell before.

Can put one in the rear of a blazer w/ it in the passenger compartment?

How do you vent the tank?

Do i really have to have a vent?

You have to have a vent, or the cell will implode. With the pump pumping, it will draw the fuel out, and suck the tank into itself. Most cells have a vent on them. You could put the cell inside the Blaze, but I would just get a smaller one and put it somewhere underneath. That would make me feel better drivin around, and no smell.

I wouldnt put it inside..just because of the smell. When you go to fill it up youll be smelling nothing but gas fumes for the next 5 miles. Are you just trying to increase the capacity of your blazer? I dont see why you want to put one inside, unless its too low for your offroading tastes..

BTW if you use the stock equipment when you hook the cell up, you wont need to vent anything. The charcoal canister acts as the vent and everything works out fine.
