Overflow??? You mean the vent? OMG, Ford never designed a car to dump excessive gasoline. The vent tube (if your car has one like my Galaxie) raises high inside the trunk then exits outside, next to the filler neck. They use the height of the trunk as a 'trap' so air can equalize pressure in the tank but liquid stays down.
