just curious what you guys think about putting the gas tank line to the rear where the left tail light is and having the tail light swing out to fill up. i have the capability and the knowledge but i thought i would check out what you guys thought first, and i know its my car and i should do what i want but im just getting a feel for what people would think. ps the gas door would be shaved

I think it would be a badass mod, I did the same thing to a truck I had. If you know how to do it, go for it!

why would you want to do that?
to be different but still keep function and reliability. i did it with some friends on my buddy's accord and getting rid of the gas tank spot keeps the lines.

I did this to my Accord and it ended up being more of a problem than "cool".

I'll try to find some pictures.. I had two different set ups.

One opened like a book and the filler was behind it. The other slid out like a drawyer on a motorized actuator and then closed when I was done filling.

I won some crazy awards with it, but I'd never do it again. It's nearly impossible to prevent water from leaking into the trunk.
