I have owned my 182Q since new and initially invested a lot of time trying to solve the fuel imbalance. The 0.03” tolerance in the adjustment of an external vent is a joke. It will move in a short time. I finally learnt that some fuel tanks imbalance is part of the SE Cessna personality and it doesn’t represent a risk. It’s impossible to dry a tank when flying with the fuel selector in the both position. The vented fuel caps, btw, are “secondary” vents to prevent an excessive low pressure inside a tank, but they do nothing to balance the fuel. Enjoy the sky.

Here is the one from my Cessna 100 Series service manual that includes the 175. Not much difference than what Steve posted.

I pulled this page from the 1963-68 100 series service manual. While it does not list the C-175, take a look to see if you think it applies. You notice the positioning tolerance is very tight. I've seen people hang coats and shirts on this vent tube. Vent positioning often gets overlooked during inspections.
Pls let me know what you find.

Thanks for the information. The right tank already has a vented fuel cap. I am not sure of the exact positioning of the vent line behind the left wing strut. Do you know what it is for a 1962 cessna 175C.
