Design Improvements for the Zenith 601 HDS: Spill Guard of Wing Tanks

Spill Guard

When one fills the tanks in the wing locker, a few drops are usually spilled. A spill guard welded to the wing tank catches the spilled fuel and drains it out of the wing via a small tube. The guard is a bit larger than the opening of the fueling door. The photos show the guard and the aerobatic style tank cap. The blue fitting of the tank connects the vent tube to the tank.
