Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Who are you?

A: We are the StayUp Float Company. We were born out of the requirement for a specialist float manufacturer in the classic automotive industry. Most classic vehicle fuel systems use a floating device to shut of fuel flow to the engine. With the recent addition of ethanol to modern fuels, older plastic floats were beginning to show signs of fatigue and in some cases failing altogether.

Q: What do you do?

A: We produce a range of StayUp floats which are the result of several years of development and testing, culminating in a range of floats that are ethanol resistant, puncture proof and adaptable to your needs.

Q: Where are you based?

A: We are based in Salisbury, Wiltshire in the South of the United Kingdom.

Q: Where are your Floats used?

A: StayUp floats have been successfully used for many years in several fuel system environments, most notably as a carburettor float in SU and AMAL carburettor systems.

Q: I’m interested in a different kind of float, is this something you can provide?

A: The StayUp Float Company are happy to discuss your float requirements. A full design and prototype facility is available. Just contact us for more information.
