My Notes on: Tomasetto Gasoline/Petrol/ Fuel LPG Cut-off Anti-theft valve mod. EB-01


NC = Normally Closed
NO = Normally Open

Not much to see here. Tomasetto Cut-off valve mod. EB-01 or similar is found on most single-point systems, and for use as an anti-theft device. Tomasetto's own blurb is confusing.

These are my notes on its operation. Might be useful to someone:

In standard operation, tap is designed to be left at 45 Degs. Me? I'd expect 'vertical' to shut valve. Not so. In the 'vertical' tap lifts and opens valve. Seems they all operate like this, which seems odd in my eyes.

I've been known to forget this, switch petrol OFF by putting tap in what I'd think was 'OFF', (ie in the vertical position) and left wondering why the engine is flooded.
