Hey folks, those of you that have received yours, can you let me know how you like the tool.
I need some feedback, what do I need to change/add ?
Any and all comments are welcome.

Thanks again for your purchase.

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...

EFN Tool

Thanks for the feedback guys.
I've considered metal but it would increase the cost.
The plastic upside is that you won't scratch the fuel tank should you bump it with the tool.
Velcro has been suggested as has a hole for a lanyard.
The hole is easy, the velcro would be as well but also will add to the cost.
BTW, I can also make these in black but it's easy to forget it on the nozzle because it blends in really well. But if there is enough demand for black I'll run a batch, just let me know.

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.

I was actually thinking about that but didn't want to encourage
drinking and driving.

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!

Peter

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.
