However, the EPA regulations present challenges to the marine industry because the compliant fuel systems are now sealed and unable to vent as in the past. The fact is, all systems sold today must not emit emissions and these new closed systems cause pressure build up inside the tank that rarely occurred prior to the new regulations.
Additionally, each component within the system adds another potential restriction to fuel flow. As fuel restriction levels rise, engine performance is affected. In some cases, complete failure can occur.
Attwood has drawn on our relationships with marine engine OEMs and expertise in integrated fuel systems to develop a comprehensive, fuel tank to engine system solution for managing pressurized fuel and fuel restriction issues resulting from new EPA regulations.
Our innovative approach ensures that your customers have a simple, safe, and reliable solution for their portable fuel needs.
