FUEL SAVER Inventor Develops Fueling Aid

“While I was working as a gas turbine engineer on a naval ship in the U.S. Navy, we would use 50-60 plastic bags to fill the drains around the ship for fueling operations," said an inventor from Miami, Fla. "Afterward, we had to dispose of them all. My invention eliminates all this hassle."

He developed the FUEL SAVER to keep a drain blocked during fueling procedures. This prevents fuel from going overboard when refueling or defueling a ship. The unit eliminates the need for multiple large trash bags to try and fill the drains around the ship. The device simplifies the process. In addition, it eliminates hassles and frustrations, and saves time and effort. The FUEL SAVER may be useful for both military and commercial ships. The invention is patent-pending.

The original design was submitted to the Hollywood office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
