Works Aluminium Fuel Surge Tank - 5 liter
What is the purpose of a fuel surge tank?
By using a Fuel Surge Tank, you ensure that your engine always gets the amount of fuel that´s needed for high power output in demanding conditions e.g. drifting, drag racing, track days. In conditions were your fuel system will be sustaining high lateral acceleration load for an extended period of time.
A Fuel Surge Tank ensures that the fuel pumps constantly receive the same access to fuel, regardless of the action of g-forces in constant or variable direction.
How does it work?
By using the flow in your fuel system the surge tank will be constantly filled with fuel. The lift-fuel pump will provide fuel from your fuel tank or fuel cell while the excess fuel returned from the Fuel Pressure Regulator is circulated back into the surge tank. These two flows generate a constant supply of fuel under any conditions, even if the fuel delivery from the fuel tank or fuel cell is reduced due to starvation during low fuel level or extreme conditions.
Our Fuel Surge Tank works as a buffer providing an inexpensive insurance policy to protect your engine and minimizes the risk of fuel loss.
Providing a constant level of fuel increases your chance to take advantage of all the power your engine delivers. If the fuel supply suddenly fails, there are high chances that your engine will take a lot of damage, especially at high power outputs and at high rpm´s.
