NEW - Sullivan ProFlex Universal Fuel Tubing
The ProFlex line of universal tubing is a proprietary Fluoroelastomer (FKM) tubing that will Never
harden. ProFlex has been designed and tested to be impervious to gas, glow, diesel, and smoke oil. The thin walls allow maximum flexibility without kinking. Now available at your favorite Sullivan retailer.

Standard Size Tubing has a 3/32" ID which is exactly the same ID as the silicone fuel line that comes with every tank. It is designed to fit 1/8" Brass tubing as well as standard size fuel fittings.

S210 - Gas Tank Re-Plumb Kit

S211 - 2' Length of ProFlex

S212 - 12' Length of ProFlex

Large Size Tubing has a 5/32" ID which is designed to fit 3/16" brass tubing as well as large size fuel fittings. In order to use the large size ProFLex in a tank you must replace the brass tubes and klunk to 3/16".

S214 - Gas Tank Re-Plumb Kit

S215 - 2' Length of Large ProFlex

S216 - 12' Length of Large ProFlex

We designed our new ProFlex fuel line with a US chemist and rubber compounder to develop a proprietary formula of FKM (Fluoroelastomer) that is chemically resistant to gasoline and ethanol which is what causes Tygon tubing to harden and deteriorate. With the help of an experienced US extruder, ProFlex has a thinner wall than commonly found on the Tygon that is used today. The thinner wall allows for more flexibility, lighter weight and easier attachment to tubing and fittings used in the RC industry.

NEW - #S751 High Capacity Fuel Filler Valve
Filling fuel tanks in RC models has never been easier until now! This new aluminum alloy fuel filler valve is perfect for large or giant scale aircraft. The fuel filler valve comes with stainless steel twist ties clamp wires and mounting plates with screws.

    • Fill or De-Fuel Tanks Safely
      - Without disconnecting any fuel lines

    • Pull To Open - Push To Close
      - Prevents engine flooding while refueling

    • Safe for All Types of Fuels
      - Gasoline, Glow Fuel, or Smoke Oil

    • Easy Mounting and Installation
      - Mounts flush against model’s fuselage

    • Works with 5/32” Fuel Tubing
      - No extra connections or tools needed

Connect the new fuel supply tube to the fill nipple in the center of the red aluminum plunger. Gently pull the plunger outward until it stops. Once the filler valve is fully opened, you can now safely and easily begin to fuel or de-fuel the tank. The fuel line to the carburetor is automatically shut off from the new fuel source when the plunger is pulled out. This prevents the engine from flooding while refueling. When the fuel tank is full, simply remove the filling tube from the fill nipple and push the red plunger inward until it is closes inside the valve body. With the top of the plunger now flush with the fuselage, your model is now ready for action. It’s that easy!
