I want to put one in:). I found this one http://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productdetails.asp?RecId=87
that's activated at 10-12 g's which sound like too much. Here's another one on Page 40 http://smartracing.net/pdfcat/srp2006_engine_fuel.pdf that's been tested on hi-po race cars that's probably (the same) or similar. Can you buy one for a "regular" car that's subject to "normal" impacts?

RT (as always :cool:) put this old posting in for those unfamilar with the device.

I spun out my spider and ended up in a ditch with a broken fuel line. The inertia switch did not stop the pump. There was gas everywhere.

Sometime later, the same switch started opening up for no reason other than it was hot. I think that they are worthless.

:(Obviously a "lugging" of the engine situation ie: you weren't going fast enough:eek:
