Valve prevents fuel vapor buildup
Company: Eaton Automotive Controls
What: Fuel tank isolation valve
Innovation: Hybrid engines, because they run intermittently, canít always burn fuel vapor from the carbon canister. Vapor is stored in the canister to prevent leakage into the atmosphere. Eatonís fuel tank valve electronically controls the vapor flowing from a hybridís pressurized fuel tank to the carbon canister, preventing overloads of the canister.
