Textbook Problem

While discussing fuel tank filler pipes and caps: Technician A says that the threaded filler cap should be tightened until it clicks. Technician B says that the vent pipe is connected from the top of the filler pipe to the bottom of the fuel tank. Who is correct?

a. Technician A only

b. Technician B only

c. Both A and B

d. Neither A nor B

To determine

The technician who is correct in his approach while discussing fuel tank filler pipes and caps.

Explanation

Given information:

Technician A says that the threaded filler cap should be tightened until it clicks.

Technician B says that the vent pipe is connected from the top of the filler pipe to the bottom of the fuel tank.

A filler cap is threaded to the filler pipe so that the thread may allow any pressure inside the tank to escape from the system. In such a case to avoid over-tightening of the cap, the cap thread is designed in such a way that it produces a clicking sound when it is rotated clock-wise, ensuring proper tightening of the cap.

A vent pipe is generally used to escape gases from the system. In case of a fuel tank, a vent pipe allows both pressure and vacuum to escape from the system...
