Ethanol and biodiesel fuel blends are capable of attracting up to 300 times the moisture of regular petroleum-based fuels, and once that fuel starts to break down it can gunk up your boat’s engine before you know it.

The unit monitors your fuel tank by allowing air to freely exit the fuel vent line when refueling and by sealing the fuel system from moisture when the boat is idle. The device is made from corrosion-resistant marine materials and is compliant with ABYC, NMMA, and USCG standards.
