What about using the Cigar Throttle on my gas tank? How can it be put in such close proximity to the fuel?
As long as your gas tank isn't compromised - leaking fuel, unsecured or no gas cap - there will be no way for the fuel to ignite.

What if a rider tries to fuel up while using the CigarThrottle?
Smoking around gas pumps is always a bad idea and we wouldn't support it with or without the Cigar Throttle.

What's the weight of the Cigar Throttle?
Very little. A CigarThrottle loaded with a cigar weighs only 8 ounces.

Is the Cigar Throttle cumbersome to use?
No, not at all. It's really not that big and not heavy. You can grip it with two fingers like you would a large magic marker.

What is the Cigar Throttle made out of?
The Cigar Throttle is made from machined billet aluminum and contains some small parts made from steel. There are neodymium magnets embedded in both ends that have a rubberized coating to protect your paint.

How is the Cigar Throttle Cleaned and how often shouldI clean it?

We're working on a way to clean the Cigar Throttle that's similar to a shotgun cleaning kit. The use of mild detergent and warm water should work quite well. You can clean the Cigar Throttle as often as you like.

How big is the Cigar Throttle?
Overall dimensions of our working prototype are 6.5 inches in length. 2.1 inches in width and 2.1 inches in height.
