Ameri-Kart buys fuel-system developer

Ameri-Kart Corp. acquired the technology assets of Enviro-Fill Inc., the developer of a new fuel overfill prevention system and fuel vapor capture system designed to help boat manufacturers meet 2011 refueling and emission requirements.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Based in Annapolis, Md., Enviro-Fill developed a fuel OPS using pressure transfer technology, which is patent pending, to meet the new EPA and ABYC guidelines, which take effect July 31, 2011.

"This is a major technology leap for Ameri-Kart as a provider of component solutions to the marine market," general manager Eric Gottuso said in a statement. "Enviro-Fill has been actively involved through the development of the new EPA and ABYC regulations. The OPS technology, combined with our fuel tanks, will allow manufacturers to comply with the new regulations without making significant, costly changes to their current fuel system design."

Ameri-Kart will be demonstrating this new technology in September at the International BoatBuilders' Exhibition and Conference.
