Good plan, except it's a 16 hour drive.

The dip is just wrong, they need to have an inverted U above the vent so that they can never fill whether it is with fuel or condensation or splash, snow, etc.
Most fill problems are result of poor planning that creates long flat runs and sharp bends, and as previously mentioned, too small ID to acommodate flow.
It is difficult or impossible to moderate the flow from modern pump nozzles.
