An automatic volumetric fuel gauge for use with Small EngineTest Set and Regenerative Engine Test Set. The gauge accurately calculates fuelconsumption and displays it directly on a digital read-out. The Automatic Volumetric Fuel Gauge consists ofa:
The gauge mounts on the instrumentation frame of the testset and connects between the fuel tank and the engine under test. Fuel entersthe fuel gauge from the fuel tank. A solenoid valve automatically shuts off thefuel supply from the tank so that the engine draws the fuel from the fuelgauge. Sensors on the fuel gauge record the time taken to consume a set volumeof fuel, and the display unit automatically calculates the fuel consumption.The solenoid valve then opens and the fuel gauge refills. The unit can be setto continuously cycle in this manner or cycle once only. All connections aremade using self-sealing couplings. The couplings ensure the fuel gauge can beconnected and disconnected quickly and efficiently with minimum loss orspillage of fuel.
