This new fuel sampling port is custom-made for Pegasus with dual Viton seals to meet the SCCA requirement for a fuel sample port. In addition to the main Viton seal at the base of the fitting, a second Viton o-ring seals the stem to prevent leakage while drawing a sample.

The male 1/8 NPT pipe thread gives you several options for easy attachment to your fuel system (see table below).

The valve also has a nipple for attaching a 1/4 inch ID hose (not included) if needed to direct the fuel away from hot exhaust. Depending on where the valve is located, you may not need any hose at all. Hint: If a hose is needed to take a sample, remove the hose while racing to prevent the normal shock and vibration of a race car from acting on the weight of the hose and causing the valve to unseat. Zip-tie the hose to a nearby frame rail or other handy location so it will be with you at impound!

I left a coil of clear fuel line attached to the port, tie-wraped in place. After our 1/2 hour race, there was evidence that a small amount of fuel had weeped past the seals. No harm was done, because the quantity was very small, and never escaped to the end of the tubing.

Fuesl sample port as expected, but is it safe?

This sample port is simple, easy to install and enables quick access to fuel under pressure. However, it is held closed only by a single spring, augmented with fuel pressure. A failure of the spring or bumping the nipple will release fuel, potentially creating a problem. A positive shut off valve in line with this would be much better.

Failed tech with this

Something I'll probably never use but it won't pass tech ta useless to me. Since bumping the nozzle makes it eject pressurized fuel technical scrutinering advised it was not acceptable to race with and left me scrambling for a solution to replace it with the night before a race.

Worked well until O rings failed

I installed this sample valve and did not have to provide a fuel sample for two years. When I finally used it, after providing the sample the bottom O ring failed and fuel began leaking all over. I have called Pegasus for replacement O rings but they did not respond as promised. I suppose I will find some piton O rings locally and fix it.
