We have sold a lot of OEM Piaggio fuel valves over the years, often to the same people. They do not last. So we decided to make a better one. We sourced parts from the US and Italy, and created this one. It has a chrome finish, and heavier duty membrane and Viton ring to withstand the long and short term effects of ethanol in your fuel. If you've already gone through one or two of the stock ones, give it a try. If you don't want to go through one or two of the stock ones, give it a try. It works.

Chrome Finish Ethanol Resistant Fuel Tap or Fuel Valve for Vespa and Piaggio with carburetor.

American Made Fuel Tap or Petcock is Ethanol Resistant, and has a special Viton Ring (not shown) to seal and hold in place in older fuel tanks better than the stock fuel valve does. Chrome coating makes seals aluminum and protects it from environmental and fuel borne premature breakdown. Special vacuum membrane is three times more durable than OEM part.

Replaces Piaggio 575331 - 575330 - 295311 - 259357 - 295534 - 298232 - 57306R, 575320 - 575321 674594

Proudly Made in USA.

Someone, SOMEONE has needed to do this since 2009 when we got our first scooters! Actually, when we "graduated" to 150's we had the "Stall of Shame" as they called it on the Genuine Buddy forum! We now have Kymco 300i's and one and its predecessor had this same problem. I have replaced one vacuum vent valve and simply vented gas caps since. But your product looks like the real solution! You make 'em for scoots besides Vespas?
