ive been running the same bottle for @5 years now and to be honest with you, i have no clue where that goes. i'm guessing it would go into the bottom of the filler neck to keep the little plastic pick up tube from moving around....

It plugs inside the wide part of the neck to restrict fuel flow. Some people don't like the fuel to gush out to fast

It actually does not fit...


The syphon tube is built into the plastic of the neck. No room for the bi-flux angled worm drive doohickeymabobber.


Ah well...If anyone else knows let me know...

Looks like the Canutin valve that goes into the Ziffel tube.

can you unhook the fuel tube from the tank, stick it in and sqeeze to put fuel in the carb and motor so you don't dry start it? if so, that means you don't need to blow in the fuel line to prime the engine just a thought

You know I thought the same thing. I contacted Doc Brown. He said it wouldn't work. He did ask me to send it to him....he wouldn't say why.

its a spacer for the fuel bottle so you can make sure you wont go over 500ml in the fuel bottle. You know tech are getting tougher LOL
