I've never had a problem. I think the syphon happens when gas gets trapped in a dip - when it starts to flow out of that dip a suction is created. I've never had an issue and have ridden on 90+ degree days on trails with the fan running non-stop.
I think mine works because the gas never get's trapped along the run of the line.

I'm gonna try your method but I had some problems when I tried this.
