    • Existing Text:
      • All mechanically fuel injected vehicles, or any vehicle using a pressurised fuel tank must have a quick-action fuel shut-off within easy reach of the Driver/ Rider, operating on the main fuel line between the pump and the injectors.
    • Proposed Text:
      • All vehicles, using mechanical fuel pumps (OEM style pumps excluded) or a pressurised fuel tank, must have a quick-action fuel shut-off (cable operated to avoid valve in cockpit) within easy reach of the Driver/Rider, operating on the main fuel line between the pump and the carburetor or injectors.
