Vent on my WVO tank keeps leaking

So i have the Vegistroke v3 with a 80 gallon tank.

There is a vent on top of the tank between the coolant lines and when i have the tank with 40 gallons or more, and i make a sharp turn, wvo seems to come out of the vent area.

Does anyone else have this problem?

I was thinking about putting a hose on that vent and securing it to go higher, so even if it sloshes and comes out, the tube going up should prevent any leakage. However, this will look very stupid if i take my shell off.

What do you guys do?

I went and got a long piece of hose that fit over the vent on my tank. then coiled it up so when oil leaks it gets stuck on the coil of hose. Every time I fill the tank I will open up the coil and raise the hose to get the oil back into the tank. I have probably 10 feet of hose.

my 60 gallon bed tank is connected to my underbelly tank. I plugged the vent line. That creates a vacuum that draws fuel into the underbelly tank, keeping it topped off for me.

That coil idea sounds pretty good.
