check with the guys @ RPM racing in arizona.... i know they had quick fill stuff on their gpr's
i know it is something custom using FuelSafe components and quick fill jugs..... should be too hard to though considering the space that is available in the front storage area

I don't think they make one.. it's hard to tip up that tanker truck

I don't know if you want to be as fast as Nextel cup drivers, but you might check out Hunsaker jugs. They might do the trick for ya.

problem with the hunsaker is they empty too fast, therefore when that air bubble makes its way up, we get a HUGE blow back of gas.

already have the hunsakers... and know baout the various quickfill systems - looking for the various configs that you guys have used for the ULTRA / pics etc. Best practices welcome

Ah so you want some secrets do you?
How much ya wanna pay for em?
Here this is a little something that the guys down in Guadeloupe are doing.
I would only change it a small bit.
Here and if you need one made on the off season then I can have it made for you.
This simple part allows for rapid release of air. The additional fuel cap is simply the air release.
I would put a second gas cap through the hull in the location opposite of the original cap. When you pop the hood it would look like a dual gas cap set up but one would be for air release and one for gas in.

Thatís not a bad idea there Skip..The biggest problem we have is that the hunsakers we are using, allow the gas to come out VERY FAST..Since we donít have the true quick fill system, we get a ton of back pressure, thus spilling everywhere. I think this is worth exploring. The "T" would have to be near the tank, and would need the cap as you mentioned. I guess when the pit team preped to re-fuel, one guy would be responsible for unscrewing the cap for the relief portion. Just donít forget to put the cap back on. Thx Skip, thatís some good info right there!
Mark, its worth looking into. I think we should talk to Dan K, and see what he thinks. He made them suave dump cans for usÖ.

These are all good ideas but if you going racing you may want to find out whats legal. You dont want to get pinged at tec time for the fast fill mods.
Its a bitch getting pinged after placing. If its a big offshore, somtimes a longer re-fuel makes for a good rest. Just something else to consider.
