Any aftermarket parts or support to address limp mode due to gas sloshing around on the Track?

Been combing through 20+ threads talking about limp mode and I haven't seen anyone offer an aftermarket solution or process to address it. Like everyone else, if you go out on the track with less than half a tank of gas, your car will go into limp mode while throwing out Rev matching and Emissions errors all over the dash.

I'm averaging 6 mpgs on the track (car is modified and tuned) and can usually kill 1/3 of a tank per 20 minute session.I don't know what I would do if I was to run for 40-45 minutes in addition to managing the temps and not overheating.

PLEASE HELP!!!!

I have done 45 to an hour no issue, my rule is every 100km to 120 km I gas it up. And have not had any low fuel issues following that rule. Car is still Sook with 2/5 left in tank. So just fill her up and reset trip to zero and you know when to go gass up. Also, Get a device that allows you to reset codes a track just in case. Cheapest fix is bringing a gerry can to track if there's no gas station close but, end then drive out at lunch to fill tank and Gerry can for second half of day. BTW it's a common issue for many car brands at track.

If you are tracking the car it might be worth it to invest in a surge tank, that should help with fuel cut in turns when the tank is low.
