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's own blurb is confusing. Tomasetto Cut-off valve mod. EB-01 - there's others very similar - will be found on most single-point systems. These have application as an anti-theft devices too.

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

In standard operation, tap is designed to be left at 45 Degs. Me? I'd expect 'vertical' to shut valve. Not so. 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 I've been left wondering why the engine is flooded.

In the 'vertical', the tap (would that be 'faucet' if you're managing in American?) lifts and opens the valve. Seems odd in my eyes, yet they all operate like this. Have fun.
