NHRA fuel check
 
What are you Stock and Super Stock racers using for the required fuel check? New to Stock racing.
Thanks

Now I use the push button type that cant stay in the open position. That was a lesson learned and a first round loss. I got mine from either Jegs or Summit.

So you don't have to pull the fuel from a fuel line under the hood?

This looks like it just pulls a sample from the tank.

Thanks,
Bill

That one mounts on the regulator. Push in and the fuel comes out of the tube. Release and it stops. Looks like a nice way to do the job. As far as I know you have to take the sample from under the hood.

"Pumps/Valves: Cars equipped with carburetor(s) or nonelectronic
fuel (EFI) systems but with mechanical non-OEM fuel
pumps must have a quick-action fuel-shutoff valve within easy
reach of driver and located in the main fuel line between the
fuel tank and the carburetor and/or injectors. Fuel recirculation
systems not part of normal fuel/pump system prohibited. All
cars in Stock, Super Stock, Competition, and Pro Stock must
be equipped with a positive-lock drain valve located between
the fuel tank and the carburetor(s) or fuel injector to facilitate
removal of fuel samples for fuel-check purposes."
