the problem i see is you have to lift the fuel tank lid up at 90 degrees to get the gun in as the nozzle of a fuel gun is much larger than a bottle.
so how do you juggle the car while pulling the tank open 90 degrees and getting the fuel gun in at the right angle?????
rmd perhaps this is one for you to research?

I've used it. It is really fast and no spilling.

The chained lid is for avoiding the loss of the lid and the slanting ventage I think it would be the key of fast refueling!

But most of the fuel gun uses required 90 degree lid up.

Unless you use the fuel bottle..........

Hey,
I've got it before,
but it was stolen by someone......
@#$%^&*!!
Need to buy a new one...
Different colour but the same company.
The reasons?
For my experience,
the ventage will speed up the refilling process.

Hope to help

So pity that you lost it.

But it is worth to buy. You will use it until damaged or .........
The pit stop time if you record it will be wonderful. If you run 1 hour race, how long time do you save?

Save about 4s. Even the little time, you know, it's the game of time in competition.

On sedan, aren't most people using the large plastic tie between the fuel tank and the rear shock tower to open the lid?

Look closely at the video on the KM page. That is how they are doing it.

Then, how's your result WITH and WITHOUT KM fuel gun?
And, did you use the others before?
