Rapid refuelling lapped up by tank crews

Clean fill fuel technology designed for Challenger tanks, 2008

Refuelling a race car in less than eight seconds is vital to Grand Prix success and safety is essential during a pit stop. Spilt fuel can lead to serious fires – remember the inferno that engulfed Michael Schumacher in 2003?

Rapid and reliable refuelling is a problem also faced by tank crews on active service. They hope to solve the problem by using special fuel caps designed by the company that makes leak-free fuel caps for F1™ cars.

The caps let fuel enter the tank quickly whilst preventing dust from getting in – a problem that puts many a military vehicle out of action. As the fuel costs more than £100 a litre to fly out from the UK, it is also vital that not a drop is lost.
