WEST MARINE–Tank Vent Elbow Fittings
A solution to low clearance fuel system connections.
Frequently the limited space above fuel tanks presents a challenge to making fuel system connections. These applications benefit from fittings that require minimal clearance allow fuel and vent lines to be run as close to the tank top as possible. West Marine elbows are just the fitting to run fuel system hoses tight to the tank top and out to the vent, fuel filter or control valve. The male side is compatible with commonly used fuel tank ports and provides a NPT female port for connecting hose barb fittings. Choose between 1/4" NPT or 3/8"NPT to match your application. Constructed of brass, these fittings are resistant to corrosion and will stand up to constant exposure to fuel. For a low-clearance fitting for fuel system applications, look to West Marine elbows for the solution.
