Default Fueling a Racer

I do not like filling my plane with nitro by disconnecting the fuel line from the carburetor then attaching the filling hose from the fueling bottle. I have always used Dubro kwik fills in my sports planes but I notice I have not seen any of these on the racer.

So what is an easy setup to install to easily refuel the plane without disconnecting the fuel line from tank to carburetor?

Appreciate the help.

You can run a T fitting in the carb line and run a line to a fuel dot. The Dubro valves will eventually start sucking air. Not a good thing when leaned out for max RPM.

So if you put s T in the carb line when fuel how do you stop the fuel from pouring out of the carburetor?

Clamp the line with a pair of hemostats.
