Aero Fuel Filler Caps


Xr3Aero type flush fitting caps draw inspiration from fuel filler caps used on American WWII fighter aircraft. Popular with motorcycle manufacturers for many years, Ducati and others have incorporated these caps in their fuel tank designs. After being seen on the Ferrari F40, automotive concept and prototype car stylists quickly caught on to the idea. Aero caps now grace the flanks of the worlds leading exotics and supercars including the Mclaren F1 and Jaguar XJ200. The design and finish of the cap are such that it is not always the appearance that attracts. The mechanism has a very pleasing feel with a precise action, as it should if incorporated on cars costing upward of a million dollars.

Construction The forged aluminum cap sits in a pressed aluminum flange sealed with a fuel resistant o-ring. Cap and flange are polished and anodized silver (colors available as special order). Caps are supplied with nuts, bolts, and fiber gasket. Locking version includes two keys.

Application Aero caps are designed for either direct to tank fitting or remote mounting to body work with connection to fuel tank through flexible hoses. To aid installation we can supply a variety of mounting flanges, funnels, fuel hose, and other assorted accessories. Caps are non-vented, however we can supply a small vent valve that can be added if required.
