Default RE: Burp tank-what is it?

Wonder if it has something to do with spillage. Boats are now being required in some marinas to affix an overflow bottle to the fuel tank vent so it can't spatter out into the water ($50,000 fine!) when the tank is completely full. Could it be some airfields are requiring the same. I always use the "squirt" out the vent to tell when I'm fueled up. That's a lot of spillage multiplied by hundreds of thousands of fliers nationwide. A catch bottle would prevent that.

Just a thought.
