Does exactly what i want with a 8mm tube. No leaks whatsoever, not even air. It even came with two thick brass pipe clips which you squeeze for quick release which was a nice touch, as i can put the 8mm tube on with confidence and it won’t tug off if snagged. I believe a 6mm tube could fit this too so long as it’s very flexible.
I bought this fuel tap on advice of a friend who mentioned that it was best to run the engine dry of fuel before storage to save gumming up the tecumseh carb on my ibea lawnmower. Took all of 5 minutes to fit and works a treat.

This briggs and stratton fuel shut off tap is very good for a number of reasons. – safety: this tap is a good safety feature because you can immediately cut the supply of fuel to the engine in a matter of seconds. If there is a fuel leak or the carb is leaking then you can also just simply turn off the tap which makes it a lot easier than draining the whole system. – handy: it is very handy to turn the fuel off when performing maintenance work on the engine. For example if you want to clean out your carburettor or fix something which means removing it, then instead of draining the fuel tank you can simply turn the fuel supply off with the tap. – storage: when storing your mower or machine you can turn the fuel supply off in case of any leaks happening when it’s not in use. Obviously if you were storing the machine for more than a couple of weeks then you would drain the system anyway. This tap is great for many reasons and therefore i am rating it five stars.
Done the job but a bit pricey.
Item price and service i recommend to everyone to trade with.

Oem b & s fuel tap, easy fit and works fine.
Good value high quality item which does what it is supposed to do. Very simple to fit, everything included.
Valve is excellent but the clamps are a bit feeble.
Repair job on old lawnmower, tap did the job, fitted on 6mm tube, but clips a little large for my tube, but adapted them to suit, first class product * company, would use them again.
Can be fitted to any part of the fuel in to meet your individual requirements.
If you have a petrol mower or whatever,that is stood for a while with fuel in the tank and no shut off,this is ideal,takes 2 minutes to fit,and will save you no end of aggro,just remmeber to switch off the fuel,and let the engine/carb run dry and cut off,saves all the residue forming in the card & round the float chamber etc,especially good for 2 stroke.
Good quality item performed as expected and cheep to boot.
The fuel in my lawn tractor used to run back into the fuel tank making starting difficult and slow, the fuel shut off valve has resolved the problem.
Not very good, threw it away.
Easy to install and simple to use.
