I have to determine the amount of pressure created when air is displaced buy gasoline flowing into a tank.

The gas enters the tank at 10gpm. The entrance has a diameter of 1.5" and the vent has a diameter of 5/8".

I need to know the pressure of the air at the exit of the tank.

Can this be modeled with the Bernoulli equation?

Using the Bernoulli equation I got an answer of around 2psi but this does not seem quite right.
