| Petrol Solenoid valve is used to cut off petrol supply to the engine when it is run on CNG.
The petrol electro valve (carbureted engine only) is placed between the gasoline filter and the carburetor, interconnected by gasoline
resistant rubber hoses and metallic clamps.
When installing the petrol electro-valve, special care must be
taken as to the direction of the fuel flow, indicated by a small arrow on the valve. As in the case of other components, the electro-valve must be fastened to the vehicle by means of the corresponding bracket, taking care that it is not installed over any other electric part that may create a spark or that the flow of gasoline in the hose does not run towards any element that may create a spark.
In view of the above, the clamps that are placed on the petrol electro-valve require the greatest care and attention. It is most
advisable to check all the other clamps of the petrol system, particularly those between the petrol pump and the electrovalve, because when closing the flow of petrol the pressure is greater than normal in that stretch.
