SERVICE LETTER #2
FUEL TANK INSTALLATION
ALL Kitfox™ OWNERS
DENNEY AEROCRAFT COMPANY
We recommend the use of structural adhesive to join the E-26 Fuel Tank
and the E-21 Filler Neck. Silicon that claims to be gasoline resistant
may be attacked by additives in some brands of gasoline. Some builders
have experienced a physical deterioration of silicon based products used
to join the E-21 Filler Neck and the E-26 Fuel Tank. The silicon has
become stringy and dropped into the tank.
fueling the Kitfox™ use extreme caution and strain all gasoline to
remove any impurities in the fuel. Shell and Chevron Company officials
have assured us that they have no ethanol or alcohol additives. Use only
gasoline with a pump octane rating over 85.
