I have not done the harpoon and this is the first I have heard of issues with it spitting out.

Have all of you cut one tube or both? I don’t know if it makes any difference, I am just curious.

As for foaming, in my travels, I have found some stations foam more than others but I have not logged which ones.

Any idea if tank size has any thing to do with it? From what i have read it is recommended to cut off as much as possible. How long is the tube anyway?

I followed the directions from all the information on this site and definitely do not use the trucker pump.
I have learned to listen with a very close ear and as soon as I hear it gurgling then that's a fair warning that she's ready to spew. Not sure what I did wrong but I sure would like to have it back. If I were to throw caution to the wind and let the nozzle cut off itself, it would projectile spew.

I cut the vent tube off as close as I could. There's probably 1/2 inch left.
Mine will puke out fuel if I wait for the cutoff, but just a touch over the fill tube. So I listen to the sound coming out the fill tube and slow down the nozzle before it cuts off. Our fuel up here foams really bad, so I have to nurse it in very slowly to get it full. I usually fill till I can see fuel in the neck.

So with that said I fail to see the difference, 6 to one, 1/2 dozen the other, if I have to nurse the fuel pump handle to get tank full or nurse the gas pump to keep fuel from puking out all over.

One of the stations I stop at has the big truck fuel handle and fills up must quicker without tripping out from foam. I am glad this information came to light rather than trusting the harpoon mod ad being a great improvement over stock which I now am in serious doubt.

The Strictly Diesel kit uses a Baldwin BF1212 which is a fuel filter/water separator. It will only separate free water and has to be drained periodically. Still, a great improvement over stock.
Get the Strictly Diesel kit and run a Donaldson P553203 filter.

I did the harpoon mod years ago. When I fill up it doesn't spit fuel out and I can still put another 2 gallons in roughly till it's all the way to the top. I always fill to the top to get accurate fuel mileage reading. I have to pump the last 2 gallons in pretty slow because of the foam though. I think the mod is just slightly better than the stock setup, can't recall anymore.

I believe I cut both tubes as close to the edge as possible using pvc cutters. So whatever that leaves (approx 3/4", IDK) I could also be mistaken as that was years ago now, but this is what comes to mind.
