Barton Fuel Whistle

After getting covered in unleaded yet again (any Ribcraft owner will know the feeling) I bought a Barton Fuel Whistle from here:
Barton FUEL / Tankentlüftungspfeife WHISTLE https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00L43RQ..._xMDezb8HDKPP0

Takes minutes to fit & works brilliantly, why did I wait so long???
It emits quite an ear piercing whistle during filling which turns into a gurgle just before the tank fills & then stops completely when full.
Best tenner I've spent all week, highly recommended

PD I've mounted mine just like you've got yours except I used the bench grinder to remove the corner mouldings for the fixing holes before I fitted it (cable tied to the main fuel filler hose). I was concerned in the long term those corners may lead to chaffing.
