Evap Fuel Nozzle (EFN) Tool, aka The GasCard

This tool is designed to hold the spring loaded boot back for you while you're filling your tank and or gas can.
The tool is the same size as your drivers license/gas card and being only 1/8" thick will fit in your wallet or a jacket pocket.
It is made of ABS plastic to prevent damage to the paint finish on your fuel tank
It's easy to use and makes filling up a cinch.
Slide the tool over the nozzle, depress the boot past the ring that holds the nozzle in place on a car fuel filler, and slide it over to lock the boot in place.
Yes I know that they are already out there, but I'd like to think that mine is better than the others and cheaper to boot, i.e. $5.00 shipped.
That price is for the lower 48 since I'm simply slipping the tool into an envelope and slapping a stamp on it. Anyplace else will be $5.00 plus shipping, i.e. whatever it actually costs me to do the same thing to places outside the lower 48.

It was just pointed out to me that I wasn't savy enough to advertise the Five for $20.00 special on page one of this thread, doh...
Anyway, that's exactly what it is.
One for $5 or Five for $20.00

Please pm me for payment information.

And here is another way to buy the GasCard:
Aerostich liked the GasCard and has started carrying it. So while you're shopping their online catalog, you can throw in one, or more, of the GasCards. Here is the link to the site: http://www.aerostich.com/gascard.html

and that led to a bit of press: http://www.cyclenews.com/9/24853/Rac...h-GasCard.aspx

I'm stocked up on a new batch, so buy away. And thank you for your business.





Here is a video clip showing how easy it is to use the tool.
The first couple of seconds show how you have to hold the boot back to activate fuel flow, followed by the EFN Tool in use.






And here are reviews by happy customers so you don't have to go through the whole thread to read them:

The New Year
Let's start the New Year with some good news: This great tool is still for sale, and at last year's price.
What this means is that all of you that forgot to get their friends something for Christmas can now make up for it at the same old price of 1 for $5 or 5 for $20. What deal.

Or just treat yourself to one, or two...like this gent:

"I just ordered five more.

My last batch I gave four to friends...then I lost mine when I left my pocket open. So got some more coming and I am gonna keep some spares for ME because once you have this thing you don't wanna be without. "

Here are some more Testimonials
Thanks to all of you who liked the tool, and said so:

Just tried this today and it worked really well.
I have a KTM 990 Adventure and filling up its dual tanks is always a hassle. Its easy to have gas spray back if you don't get the correct combination of nozzle angle/gas flow and vapor boot pull back.
The tool was easy to slip on and gave plenty of visibility when fueling up, especially since I now can now do it one handed.
I keep the tool in my glove box. Well worth 5 bucks.
A metal version might be nice.

Mine showed up right away, mailed fast.
Only tried 2 gas stations so far but it fits right. Made the Chevron a lot easier and nicer to be able to see into the tank when topping off.

And with my ST1100, I stick it under the fuel door so i don't have to dig it out of a pocket when I fill up. A little spot of velcro might hold it in place for other bikes...

Anti Vapor recovery tool
Yepper, happy camper here. Works great. I also used it on my gas can.

Good Luck

I received my order. Thanks for the quick service.

This gizmo is so light, it would only need a small piece of velcro to stick it to something. Also, it would be easy to drill a hole for a lanyard of some type. I say leave it as is, inexpensive and simple, and let user make their own mods if needed.

If you decide to make a metal version, I'd suggest experimenting with the shape of the slot - there might be a way to make it double as a bottle opener.

Thanks Alex, I got mine today. It only took 13 days to get here due to Canadian customs and the great mail system.
I'll let you know how I like it sometime in the spring.

Cheers

Okay, I finally got around to trying this thing, awesome. I like the hole design over the Aerostich version, it is less likely to fall off the nozzle. Held the vapor thing back perfectly. Heavy construction yet lightweight. At this time I can't think of any needed improvements.
You should mass produce these babies with ads for cycle shops,mags, etc. Much better than keyrings. Let me know if you want someone walk these around the SF bay area.

I used mine today for the first time...works GREAT!
I had put it in my wallet next to my credit card so I'd remember to use it.
It also fits perfectly in the little pocket on the right forearm of my 'stich.
Two thumps up!

I got my tool today. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Its the size of a credit card and about 4 cards thick. I haven't tried it out yet, but I am impressed by the design. I'm hoping I'll need some gas this weekend to try it out on. I learned last weekend how much of a pain it is to fill a tank on a GS with the nozzle's foreskin, so hopefully this will make it easier.

I have used mine a few times now, works great.

Works great with our "advanced" California nozzles. Thanks for coming up with these Kai Ju.

I used mine on my airhead which has always been a problem when trying to top-up. Wished I'd had one o these 30 years ago...
__________________________________________________ _________________________________________________

I reviewed this tool a month ago. Originally only tried it on an old pump and the nozzle didn't allow it to lock in place. Now that it has been over a month, I have used this tool a bunch. It works fantastic on all modern pumps. I use it everytime I fill up now.
__________________________________________________ _________________________________________________

I bought one of these for my fly & ride from Seattle to SE AZ, it worked perfectly.

At my last gas stop in California I filled up and then watched a herd of Harleys across the lot doing the same thing. They were having issues holding the pump sleeve back so I went over and popped this tool on their pump and told them to go at it. They were completely amazed and wanted to know where I got it. Karma being the rule I gave them mine so now I'll have to buy another if I end up going back through CA.

Great tool and highly recommended.

Great for your gas can fill ups!
I use this product when I fuel up my Rotopax gas container, and it works great!

No more overfilling the gas can, I can see inside the neck of the can to judge when to stop the flow.

Thanks for a handy and useful product.

Ordered two more. Can never have too many Xmas stocking stuffers.
__________________________________________________ _________________________________________________

Just used mine again an hour ago, this thing just plain works.
__________________________________________________ _________________________________________________

I lost one and my life is incomplete without all three. PM sent to acquire another one of this life-affirming miracle product.
__________________________________________________ _________________________________________________

Well I finally got a chance to use the Vapour tool..........we took a trip to NorCal and it was needed there.
I drilled a small hole in mine, attached one of those retractable key ring thingies to the tool and a pocket on the AeroStich..........and it worked great!!
All the guys I travelled with wanted one.
Do yourself a favour and get one or two.

Cheers

Just got mine today and tried it out. Worked great!! Thanks for making a great inexpensive product.

Looks like a great idea for the CARB nozzles we have to deal with in California. I'd like to get one or more and sent a PM.

Thanks

I bought ten of these little wonders as gifts for my riding buddies, think I should buy some more, great tool super price
Thanks again

Got It!
Thanks a lot....great product and cheap!

Been using this Nozzle Tool, and it helps alot!
I like thats its plastic cause if you bump the tank during fill-ups, it won't scratch it.

Great tool, and great idea.
__________________________________________________ _________________________________________________

I got one of these gadgets and tried it for the first time yesterday. It's dead simple and works great. If you live where you have to deal with EFN nozzles do yourself a favor and have Kai Ju send one to you.
__________________________________________________ _________________________________________________

just used mine, like I do every time I get gas, awesome.
__________________________________________________ _________________________________________________

These are great tools, have given many out as gifts
Alex see you at the swap meet this month for another purchase of ten. Also if you haven't tried his funnels out, they work super
Happy holidays
Jim


You just saved yourself from reading seventeen pages. If the above comments don't make you want one, or several, of these
I don't know what else will.

Belly up to the bar and spend some money, would you ? .
