But she makes good eye candy sitting in the chair with the kids as I set up camp....
Actually, I think it'll spend most of its time in the back of the truck while camping.

Hi, richinny. I did put a plug on the end of the clear hose, but since the ball valve was made in Italy, not China, I feel pretty safe.

Hi, overlander63. I will post some pictures of my set up; It does connect directly to the fuel rail, but I will leave it attached because I already got burned a little bit because the valve is located deep into the intake manifold area. And that is another reason for the valve. Not to mention that I can't hold the hose, watch the filler, and run to the other side of my Lincoln to turn the engine off.

In the first picture, top left, is my "Gas-Can-Less" kit. In the second picture, top right, is the connection to the fuel rail; Deep inside the intake manifold area. In the third picture, bottom left, is the storage area for the hoses and valve. In the fourth picture, bottom right, is the hose and valve hanging down as it would be when in use to refill my generator.

Please keep in mind that there is a substantial volume difference between 51db and 54 db. Our ear's perception is complicated in that respect.
