In 2011, the EPA required all primer bulbs and primer bulb assemblies to utilize low permeation components to reduce pollution causing hydrocarbon permeation through the hose and/or primer bulb by as much as 85%.
In response, Sierra introduced a new EPA approved primer bulb that exceeded the mandated permeation rate while maintaining Sierra’s traditional look, feel, and operational characteristics.
Manufactured from a unique FKM material, Sierra’s primer bulb meets both EPA and CARB standards while providing outstanding warm/cold weather flexibility.
The Silverado 4000 is a rubber fuel line with fabric reinforcement that features a PVDF layer to prevent permeation.
Designed to meet all EPA/CARB requirements and compatible with all blends of ethanol reformulated fuel, the Silverado 4000 is extremely flexible and kink resistant in all weather conditions.
• High flow check valve
• Stainless steel hose clamps
• Fluoroelastomer (Viton®) compound exceeds EPA's requirements
