Italian term or phrase: tenuta del gas
From a text on the internal combustion engine and Ruhmkorff's spark coil:

"Evidenziamo a questo proposito la scarsa **tenuta del gas** di tale dispositivo proprio perché costituito da una valvola a saracinesca scorrevole dentro guide verticali.In secondo luogo si sarebbero generati degli sfasamenti, difficilmente prevedibili, tra il momento dell’interruzione della corrente nel primario e quello della nascita della tensione indotta nel secondario.."

I'm not sure about the meaning of "tenuta" in this context - seal? holding?

Thanks for your help!
