John, Josh, Mark- In the space vehicle world we call that a propellant management device (PMD) and that one seems to work very well. In zero gravity, fuel in a propellant tank tends to form a sphere in the center of the tank, well away from traditional fuel pick-ups in tanks. Solutions are to do a settling burn with the attitude control system to get the fuel over the traditional pick-ups, or use a PMD like this one. Wonder if they got it from aerospace sources or if the aerospace community might be able to use this version?

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
