Fuel filler cap

Fuel filler cap


The tank in my J15 was custom designed by me to give more leg room in the passenger side of the car.  In addition to the custom design a large aircraft style filler was considered desirable to minimise any spillage during filling. At the time of originally writing this I was under the impression I needed a lead free valve for the purposes of the IVA. If you read the comments it became obvious that this fine fabrication was not needed. However I never completely disposed of it and poat IVA I found a use for it. See "Fuel system modifications" 13th Dec 2013.

  1. Hate to say this but I don't think there is a requirement for a restrictor any more. I certainly didn't have one. Latest copy of the IVA manual is here:- http://www.dft.gov.uk/vosa/repository/M1%20Inspection%20Manual%20v8.02%20Oct%202012%20%28Web%29.pdf

  2. You appear to be right, I will be delighted not to have to fit the above.
