How can I pass smog w/ fuel cell?

How can I pass the NV smog (visual) with a fuel cell? I have a 95 Wrangler with a fuel cell in the very back, by the tailgate. There is a deck that covers the cell. Filler neck opening in the body has been cut away.

How do you guys pass smog?

a return line would be a must.

and maybe a positive seal for the cap, something that cant vent. not ideal but might be needed.

i passed smog in nevada with a fuel cell.

get one of these (or i made mine): http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

then ran it to my original filler neck that has the reducer in it (that is what they are looking for, you know so we can't put the BIG LEADED GAS hoses in it - a little out dated IMO). it actually works better than the standard fuel cell setup. i welded the filler neck towards the outside of the chassis on a full tube buggy. then i can still fill with gas even when i'm packed with camping gear.

if you have a stock filler neck setup mounted in a visible location chances are they are going to go looking. make it look like it goes somewhere. cover fuel cell.
