This technical information has been contributed byHUNTINGTON Beach, Calif.—STAR EnviroTech recently announced that its double-door Capless Fuel Neck Adapter, which provides an OEM-quality fit for all new Ford and GM double-door capless fuel necks, was recently awarded U.S. Patent No. 8,998,170 B2. The adapter will also fit other automakers’ double door capless fuel systems currently in development, according to a release from the manufacturer.
Capless Fuel Neck Adapter Awarded Patent
Innovative adapter is said to work with virtually any automotive leak detection device
STAR’s newly patented Capless Adapter is said to solve the problem by creating a secure seal for testing. Unlike capped fuel tank adapters that attach outside the fuel neck, the STAR Capless Fuel Neck Adapter slips through the double doors and securely seals with a twist. It works with virtually any leak detection device to perform EVAP system tests, especially pressure/ vacuum decay and smoke leak testing (An 18-second demo can be seen at www.vacutec.com/capless/). It also integrates seamlessly with smoke machines featuring STAR EnviroTech’s patented Diagnostic Smoke® leak detection technologies.
STAR EnviroTech (StarEnviroTech.com), based in Huntington Beach, Calif., develops industry standard technologies for leak testing in fuel evaporative (EVAP), vacuum/induction, turbo, and other vehicle and non-vehicle systems. The company doesn’t sell to end-users; instead, it licenses its technologies to the largest tool manufacturers and distributors worldwide.
