Nobody likes to fuel up, and I mean nobody. It’s an expensive, messy proposition that is a necessary hassle for all boaters (sorry, you too, sailors). On a very good day, you might pull right up to the fuel dock, pump your gallons of diesel, swipe your credit card, and be on your merry way. On a bad day, well, let’s just not go there.
So, literally any enhancement to the fuel-filling process is a welcome one, especially if it also helps the environment—okay, helps not-hurt the environment. Enter the Clean Way Fuel Fill, a patented and relatively inexpensive gizmo that allows for easy, spill-free tank fills minus the usual assortment of rags, diapers, or whatever absorbent materials you use to control stray fuel. With Clean Way, simply place the chemical-resistant (the makers won’t call it plastic) device into your deck fuel fill, insert the fuel nozzle, and squeeze. The Clean Way filler includes a baffle that allows fuel to travel up, in case of an overflow, but not out—keeping the water, your clothes, and your beautiful teak decks fuel free.
In case you’re wondering, the filler does come in both 10- and 12-inch models, so when you want to apply your enviro-conscientiousness to your jet ski, you can do that, too. Clean Way also comes with a number of adapters that will work with nearly every imaginable application.
