These quick disconnect fittings utilize Nitrile (Buna N) o-rings and may not be compatible with some race fuels."

Per Problem Solving Products, Inc. website:

"Because of the resistance to fuel and oil, and the reasonable cost, more o-rings are made from nitrile (buna n) than any other elastomer. In addition to use with petroleum oils and fluids, nitrile o-rings are used for cold water, silicone greases and oils, Di-ester base lubricants and ethylene glycol base fluids. They do not do well with ozone, sunlight and exposure to weather."
