What application are JAZ Products fuel cells designed to be used in?

Do the Polyethylene fuel cells carry SFI certification?
Most JAZ Products polyethylene fuel cells exceed SFI Spec. 28.1, but only the fuel cells labeled “THIS FUEL CELL CARRIES SFI CERTIFICATION” are actually certified. Only the fuel cells that are specifically designed for classes that require SFI certification receive a serial number and SFI label. If the fuel cell you require does not come standard with certification, JAZ Products can SFI certify any polyethylene, Pro Sport, or Specialized cell (with foam) for a nominal fee of $50.00.
Do the Polyethylene fuel cells carry FIA certification?
Our fuel cells are not approved for FIA. FIA requires a bag-type rubber bladder and not a hard plastic shell. You can try Fuel Safe for these types of fuel cells.
Can an internal fuel pump be installed into our Polyethylene cells?
Yes. However, our polyethylene fuel cells are not designed for use with internal fuel pumps, as there is no existing provision for mounting. An internal pump can be drilled and installed by the customer.
What racing sanctions are JAZ Products fuel cells approved for?
All JAZ Products fuel cells are NHRA and IHRA approved. Our Pro Sport and other fuel cells with outer metal container are BITD, IMCA, LOORRS, and SCORE legal. Our Pro Max fuel cells are UDTRA and XTREME Dirt Car Series legal. Fuel cells with outer metainer container, roll over flapper protection, and added SFI certification are CHUMP Car Series legal.

Does JAZ Products offer custom fuel cells?
Our polyethylene and polyethylene with outer metal container (Example: Pro Sport) fuel cells can be customized. The size and/or location of fittings can be modified per the customer's request. Also, the filler cap type and/or location can be modified. A fuel level sending unit can also be added if fuel cell is tall enough and has a sufficient mounting surface to accept one. There is a $25.00 labor charge for custom cells.
All Aluminum fuel cells are pre-built and no fitting changes can be made. The fuel cap can be changed out for a different 6-bolt cap or filler upon request. For models that come with a fuel level sending unit, the sending unit can be changed out for a different ohms range other than the standard 0-90 ohms upon request.
We do not offer custom-molded fuel cells. The sizes we carry in our product catalog are the only cells available. Our flat bottom polyethylene fuel cells can be flipped on their side or stood up on end and custom-built with fittings & filler installed on desired top portion. The customer can try Fuel Safe for a custom-molded fuel cell made to their specifications.
What applications have JAZ Products fuel cells been used in other than racing?
We have sold our fuel cells for Marine, Motorcycle, ATV and other various applications. However, we do not recommend using our fuel cells in an airplane application.
JAZ Products fuel cells are made for racing applications only. Our fuel cells are not D.O.T. approved and are not designed for street use.
How do I determine which part number of mounting straps to order for my Polyethylene fuel cell?
You would need to match the middle three digits of the mounting strap part number with the middle three digits of the fuel cell part number. For example, if you have a fuel cell with part number 250-016-01, you would need mounting strap part # 400-016-03.
Do you offer mounting straps for the Pro Sport, Pro Max, and Pro Lite, JEEPSpeed, and Tear Drop fuel cells?
Straps are available for the Tear Drop fuel cell only. All other mounting straps are designed for our polyethylene fuel cells. You would need to make custom straps, tubing, or a cage to mount these fuel cells. Artec Industries offers mounting straps which fits some of our Pro Sport fuel cell models.
How can I tell which AN fittings are for Pickup/Outlet, Return, and Vent?
Plastic AN fitting caps are plasced over each AN fitting when leaving our facility. These plastic caps are color coded to designate the use of each type of fitting. Here is the Plastic AN Fitting Cap Color Code Key: Orange/Red cap is Pickup/Outlet, Yellow cap is Return, and Blue is Vent.
