Hi All,

I'm coming to Gang Warily this weekend and want to race but I need to fit a non return valve to my 12 litre plastic fuel tank, I'd be grateful if anyone who has the same set up could share the best way to go about doing this.

I think you have the same 12l tank I have, orange in colour. All I've done which is the same as Daniel Turnbull has done in the Little Scrappers, is remove the breather screw out of the lid, open the hole up to around 7mm, and pushed fitted a "male ended" return valve into the lid. I also cut a little of the raised section off the lid to ensure the valve is tight and flush. Extremely simple to do, and it passed the initial Scrutiny and everyone since.

Use the link below, that's similar to the one I have fitted

Hope that helps.

Hi Mark,

If you can't get one in time then I think I have one in the toolbox. If you need it let me know and I'll bring it with me.

Good to have you back sir!
