    fuel drain size

    I am about to order some SAFE AIR fuel drains. I see the PA18 option is a CAV-160 1/4 NPT. I presume these are the wing fuel tank drains.

    What size will fit the Gascolator?

    1/8 National pipe thread. Most gasolators come with the petcock.

    Like the CAV-110 below? The New "Steves Gascolator (SA3-00 ) had no drain with it.

    Gascolator is 1/8 NPT thread.

    Safe Air P/N is CAV-110
    Curtis P/N is CCA-1550
