Abstract : Disclosed is a fuel bladder having a flexible bladder wall with a fuel outlet aperture in which a tubular penetration body extends through the aperture and an interior flange on the tubular penetration abuts the interior side of the flexible bladder wall. A tubular valve connection member is superimposed over the fuel outlet aperture such that its outer peripheral surface abuts the inner peripheral surface of the tubular penetration body. A washer and a lock nut are positioned over the tubular penetration member to press the fuel bladder wall against the tubular penetration member interior flange. An 0- ring seal is positioned between the proximate surface of the tubular penetration body and the interior side of the bladder wall. Another 0-ring seal is positioned adjacent the outer peripheral surface of the tubular penetration body and the exterior side of the bladder wall.
