It works!

September 23, 2014
My fuel tank had just a elbow with a hose rising above it and when I would take a corner, gas would splash out. This has cured that problem. Thank you!

Vent for Hot Rods

March 14, 2012
Used this product as a vent to the gas tank on a 31 Ford Hot Rod. The previous vent worked ok, but it allowed fuel to spill out when the tank was filled up. This vent allows the air out during fill ups, but it prevents the fuel from coming out of the vent. Great Product.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have purchased this product before

March 02, 2010
I used this product to vent the fuel tanks on all of my street rod projects. I do not expect to roll any of these cars over, but they do sit outside in the sun at car shows. I like the hose connection to move the vapors away from the tank. On my 67-72 Chevy truck we used it to vent into a canister like the orginal 72 had.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Easily forgotten, but extremely importan

September 20, 2013
Filling up my tank at the gas station was a nightmare until I installed this vent valve. Now I don't spend 45 minutes at the station only to get my feet covered in fuel. This simple (but effective) part installs in minutes and saves you of many head aches (because your not huffing fumes from you fuel soaked shoes)
Pros:
  • Effective
  • Simple
Cons:
  • None
Yes, I recommend this product.

This vent must be installed on the top of the tank, preferably at the highest point of the tank. No filter is required, you can install a rubber hose on nipple and route towards the ground

What's the best location in the fuel tank to install? Will it matter if submerged in fuel?

This vent must be installed on the top of the tank, preferably at the highest point of the tank. It is not recommended to have it submerged in fuel since it would be possible for the fuel to be pushed out this vent if the fuel tank gets pressurized.
