    Looks good to me. I have a very similar one if not the exact same thing. Works like a charm. I believe the important part is knowing what the O-Ring is made of.

    Looks like it would do the trick, I went with these and have been very happy with them.

    Non-above
    It's important that the O-rings are VITON

    I used Jiffy-Tite connectors as per a recommendation on this site. The are approved for race motors, so they should work for us.

    That's the one I've been using for a couple of yrs now with no problem.

    Per Motion Pro web ad:

    "Quick Disconnect 1/4 Single Shut Off
    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."
