Default fueling a incowl 46?

hi, i have my first model with which includeds a cowl, the tank set up has the vent line, fuel line and im guessing the other line is what a fill her up with.
the problem would be not being able to free the back presure line from the muffler to let over flow not get into the muffler.
do i put a mark on the tank and stop when it reaches that mark? or is there another way?
thanks.

Fuel dots and T's. You can T the line from your back pressure and use a fuel dot they get drilled neatly into your cowl and the fuel dot stopper is used to cap the line after fueling. Most everyone that has an in cowl engine uses them. They are cheap and can be found at your LHS or from web sites like psp.com

SBR...I can't really help more with your fuelling question but your avatar got me
The first pic is from an Adelaide air show and the second one (A8-142) is the plane I did a bit over Mach 2.3 in, before it got its grey paint.

As smooth as silk, no noise, no vibrations. Now 450 knots at 300 feet over the Queensland country side letting the plane fly itself was something else

Errr..and to bring things back to the Fuels forum...33,000 pounds of kero you could use in model diesel fuel (now that's a stretch!).
