Default fuel tank handle

How is the best way to make a handle on my truggy fuel tank for quick refueling during the race?

Thanks

Zip ties or tie wraps work, you can use fuel tubing to make the handle easier to pull. Obviously make it longer for truggy.

Looks like this when your done.

Just make sure you don't make a loop. The loop can get caught on things and open your tank. Then you'll have to make an extra pit for more fuel or run out if you don't know it opened up.
