Capless Refueling System with Mis-Fuel Inhibitor

For car fuel system components, plastic has several advantages that enable it to outperform metals. Plastic frees engineers from the design constraints that metal imposes. The environment benefits from plastic's light weight, which makes cars more fuel-efficient, and from innovative techniques that minimize vapor emissions. And from a safety standpoint, rupture-resistant plastics with high impact strength are helping keep our cars' fuel delivery systems leak-proof and reliable.

Lightweighting with materials made from plastics can contribute to fuel conservation.
