Sure does. I asked about this on another forum (more VO related) and someone said that they need more pressure then we use and lots of flow. Not sure how this nozzle works, so I dont know if that is true or not.

I bought one of those and used it. Put it in my tank turned it on and walked away Next thing I know, vegi oil was flowing out of the tank, down the bed and onto the driveway. For whatever reason, mine did not shut off. Afterwards, I have tried it several other times (under careful supervision) and it has yet to shut off.

yes, i think these need more viscous and faster flow to activate the trigger off.
I would never walk away from a pump filling ANYTHING with vegi...i have cleaned up too many Valdeez spills and its NOT fun.
Best to just stand there and watch your guage.
Tubular, your tank has a handy little float gauge right there inside the tool box...use it when filling and if you try to top it off, expect to have an over fill eventually. Ask how i know.

abbrev for assembly. It's the all in 1 unit that tuthill sells(pump,meter,nozzle) expensive but worth it between my bro and I
