Concerning Jerry Bertam’s tragic loss. On the cars from at least 1934 to 1938 the gasoline filler tube enters the tank on left side. The filler tube has a small metal bleed tube on the inside. This bleed tube is connected to a air bleed on the top of the gasoline tank to allow air to escape as the tank is filled. The connection is by a flexible “plastic”” tube. I am wondering if this flexible tube is being effected either by age or the gasoline to which alcohol has been added.
