More than 15 million vehicles in North America are equipped with capless fuel systems. While the capless tanks make filling up at the gas station easy, their internal components do not permit a free flow of fluid from traditional fuel additive bottles or portable gas cans. There are even some capped systems that require additive users to open the fuel door with a screwdriver or other tool.
Fortunately, Rislone has created a series of solutions for vehicle owners with obstructed fuel systems. Rislone Gasoline Fuel System Treatment and the company’s super-concentrated line of fuel additives all come equipped with capless-compatible packaging. Now, for users who find themselves in emergency situations or want to use up old bottles, Rislone introduces the EZ Nozzle Funnel.
“Capless systems are designed to open only when a fuel pump nozzle is inserted,” explains Clay Parks, vice-president of development for Rislone. “If a user tries to pour something into the fuel tank from a standard bottle, the fluid could back up and run down the side of the vehicle. To fix the problem, we designed a special funnel that has a neck with the same dimensions as a fuel pump nozzle.”
When inserted into the fuel filler neck, the EZ Nozzle Funnel opens any obstructions. It features a wide, asymmetrical mouth that makes it simple for users to cleanly empty any bottle or gas can into the fuel tank.
The funnel is less than 20 centimeters long, so it can be easily stored within the vehicle. In addition to fuel additives, it can be used with engine oil, power steering fluid and other fluids needed for routine maintenance.
“This is a product that everyone should have in their vehicles,” said Parks. “You never know when you might have to add a litre of gas from a can or top off the engine oil.”
Like all Rislone products, the EZ Nozzle Funnel (P/N 34790) is made in North America. It is available to distribution in case packs of 24.
