The M-1 is a simple, yet highly effective, detector of engine compartment fumes. In addition to gasoline fumes, it will detect unburned hydrocarbons from faulty exhaust systems, as well as hydrogen vapors emitted when batteries are overcharged.
Unlike competitive products, the Xintex fume sensor is splash-proof - allowing for mounting it right in the bilge, where gasoline vapors collect. It has a proprietary coating which is resistant to incidental water splashes, but allows vapors to pass.
Although the MS-2 Sensor used in these systems can also detect propane & CNG vapors, the components of the M-series Detector Systems are geared toward gasoline. For the specialized fume detection requirements of propane & CNG heating and cooking systems, please see the Xintex S-Series Propane Detectors in a separate entry.
