Heavy Truck Solutions is debuting its revolutionary heavy duty fuel neck attachment & cap system, the Leak Defender, for the commercial trucking industry at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) booth 70,100.
MESA, AZ, March 26, 2015 – During regular use, the threads of a heavy truck’s fuel neck wear and diesel will leak out onto the fuel tank. This not only looks bad, but can cause fuel to leak out onto the road and become a DOT compliance issue. The Department of Transportation (DOT) mandated that the fuel systems on heavy trucks are properly sealed and free from leaks. Heavy Truck Solutions has responded with its revolutionary patent-pending product, the Leak Defender. Currently, there is no other paramount answer to this problem and fleet owners and drivers implement expensive (e.g. replace fuel tank) or futile solutions (e.g. constantly replace the fuel cap). “I wanted to offer a better, more cost-effective solution.” said, company owner, Carlos Davito. “My goal was to develop a reliable product that was quick to install and kept my fleet on the road with no downtime. So I came up with the answer”
The advanced features of the new fuel neck attachment and cap system make it virtually impossible for fuel tanks to leak. When attached, the system provides a completely new sealing surface made of billet aluminum to withstand the wear and tear of everyday fueling. It seals along the outer perimeter of the fuel neck, away from the inner perimeter which is prone to nicks and abrasions. Also, the ergonomic cap allows for easy fill-ups at the pump, looks great and keeps your tank clean.
