Risk Racing Flow Control Auto Gas Can Shut-Off
Filling an empty fuel tank seems like a simple task, but it often turns into a monumental chore comprised of wrestling a heavy gas can, guessing when the tank is full, dealing with “Old Faithful” style overflows, and of course facing a hazmat clean-up of spilled fuel. Even the task of getting the gas can spout in and out of the fuel tank without spilling can be an experiment in speed and aim. All of this spilled fuel is wasteful, costly, damaging to paint and graphics, and hazardous to our environment. Luckily, the designers at Risk Racing have identified the problem and created an innovative and useful solution. It is called the Flow Control.
The Flow Control is a dual-feature, universal gas can spout. It is designed to prevent the dreaded fuel tank overflow, as well as aid the user in making entry and exit from your fuel tank easy and free of spills. The Flow Control achieves these two tasks in two very creative ways.
The overflow protection is accomplished by the use of a patent pending “float valve” that automatically closes and seals the gas can when the fuel level in your tank is full. It takes all the guesswork out of filling your tank and delivers a perfectly topped off fuel tank every time.
The Flow Control also has a secondary “spout bending” feature designed to make getting the gas can spout in and out of your fuel tank easy and spill free. This is accomplished with a unique cap and lanyard system that is designed to protect your float valve during storage, and then bend your spout to the perfect pour angle during use. The pour angle is the key to easy tank insertion with no spills, as well as a simple and clean exit when the tank is full.
Finally, the Flow Control accomplishes these tasks with little to no restriction in fuel dump speed. Your tank will be topped off with efficiency.
The Risk Racing Flow Control comes fully assembled and easily attaches to most “powersport” style gas cans or utility jugs with a ¾” hose or threaded hose adapter.
