Default fuel pump issues

Hi all
After pumping fuel into my tank with my electric fuel pump for my ross 45, after it is full and i disconnect, the fuel line for the engine squirts fuel all over. does the fuel pump put to much air pressure in this small 8 oz tank or what is the problem

Do you see the fuel going into the muffler through the pressure line when it's full?

Do you have a check valve or something in the pressure line?

Does it really squirt, or just dribble out? If it doesn't really squirt, it might be related to tank location.

...and if it does squirt, i would check the pressure-line going to the muffler... It may be clogged and need replacing...
