  • Patent number: 9333851
    Abstract: A fuel cutoff valve comprises a casing having a primary valve chamber and a secondary valve chamber, a primary valve mechanism housed in the primary valve chamber, and a secondary valve mechanism housed in the secondary valve chamber. The casing has a first communication path that connects the inside of the fuel tank and the primary valve chamber, and a second communication path that connects the primary valve chamber and the secondary valve chamber, due to the differential pressure between the tank internal pressure and the primary valve chamber, by the fuel in the fuel tank flowing into the primary valve chamber through the first communication path, a connection conduit is closed by the primary valve mechanism. When the fuel level inside the fuel tank reaches a second fuel level, the second communication path is closed by the rising of the secondary valve mechanism.
