PERKO–Vented Diesel Fill
Vented Diesel Fill
For 1 1/2" Line
With 5/8" Vent
Chromed Bronze Cap
Install a diesel fill and vent at the same time with a single deck fitting
To maximize cockpit space and make fuelling easier many boat designers have looked to locating the fuel fill in cockpit coamings, but space is a challenge. Perko offers a solution for this situation. The angled design of this diesel deck fill fitting allows users to locate the fitting on an angled surface and run the fill hose vertically to the tank. This fitting has become OEM equipment on many fiberglass pleasure boats for their ease of installation. A tank vent has been integrated into the polymer body with a flame arrestor and anti-surge valve to conserve space and reduce installation time. International standard gasoline symbol and cast in lettering clearly mark cap. A stainless steel bead chain is installed to prevent losing the cap during fill-ups. Edges of the cap are knurled for hand tightening, an included key helps to add additional torque. Speed up installation using this fill and vent combined fitting.
