Re: Fuel line shut off options?

I like your idea, but was thinking of a switch I can throw from the cockpit that denergized the solenoid valve. On my diesel the engine solenoid is energized to close. If you find a solenoid fuel valve that denergizes to close let us know. Failing that what I did was to put in a port in the cockpit that I can open and reach the manual shut-off valve, not the best solution.
