    Fuel Cell Safety Foam


    What is the life expectancy of our safety foam?

    There is no set life to the safety foam. The inline fuel filters going to the fuel pump should be checked often.

    Can the safety foam be used with Alcohol / Methanol / Ethanol fuels?

    No. Alcohol, Methanol, and Ethanol fuels are not recommended with our safety foam. The water content in these fuels will cause the safety foam to deteriorate.

    Can the safety foam be used with Diesel fuels?

    Yes. With Diesel fuels, we recommend the safety foam be replaced once a year or once a season. The inline fuel filters going to the fuel pump should be checked often.
    The water content in the Diesel fuel will cause the safety foam to deteriorate.

    Can the safety foam be used with Water (in an Intercooler or ice water tank)?

    We do not recommend using the safety foam with Water. The water will cause the safety foam to deteriorate.

    How can you tell of the safety foam is bad and needs to be replaced?

    The foam will look like a flame burned it. Using Alcohol, Methanol, Ethanol fuels, as well as other fuel additives causes this. Also, if you notice signs of deterioration in the fuel cell or at the inline fuel filters, the foam may need to be replaced.

    How much safety foam should be installed into a fuel cell?

    The foam should take up about 75% of the fillable void. The foam will expand when fuel is added.

    How much volume of fuel does the safety foam displace?

    The foam will take up anywhere from 1% to 4% of the volume of the fuel cell. This varies depending on the gallon capacity of the fuel cell. The smaller fuel cells, like 1 to 5 gallons will be around 1% to 2%. The larger fuel cells, like 16 to 32 gallons will be around 3% to 4%.
