    Default Fuel Valves????

    I have an electronic fuel valve. Is there any reason why having one of these is better then having a manual one which can run both tanks evenly like one of these:

    This is the one I run... Doesn't work any better than the others and it's a little more expensive.

    That valve above will only draw fuel from one tank at a time. If' thats the case just keep the electric one you have. If you want to be able to draw from both tanks you need one of the others.

    I was jsut about to post that after re-reading the first post.. Yea mine only does one or the other or locks them both off.. it works for me as i like to empty one at a time so i know i have some reserve to get back to shore.

    just looked that one up...$200...out of control. They actually require a portion of your soul to buy one of these (3/8ths summer time, 1/4 off season). Appearently they are widdled down from a solid piece of crystal with a spoon by Indonesian elders and they are tested in the Tibetan mountains then blessed by gregorian monks.
