petcock

yogidozer:
Most replace the electric petcock with a manual shut off, I did about 20 years ago.
But why doesn't someone make one like the older version, flip to on/off/reserve?
Will one from an older model fit an EV?

guzzisteve:
Yes, they fit. The hole is larger for a larger amount volume to fuel pump. That's all.

Thanks for the answer  :thumb:
You would think someone went to the trouble to make a manual petcock, they would make one with a reserve.  :rolleyes:

bmc5733946:
Any petcock used on fuel injection needs to be high flow without restriction so that gravity can feed enough fuel to feed the electric pump which flows much more fuel than the injectors can deliver with the excess being returned to the tank. Restrictions in fluid systems build heat, heated fuel is not really what we want /  need for engines hence the increased flow and return to tank etc..
