Fuel Surge Tank Collector

Fuel starvation is a major concern within a fuel system, and one of the most common issues. One of the simplest and most effective solutions to fuel starvation is the addition of a collector or surge tank to your fuel system. Collectors, often times called a slosh box, are installed inside the fuel cell and designed to trap fuel near the fuel pickup line for to prevent air from entering your fuel system. Surge tanks are another option to prevent fuel starvation and can be mounted internal or external from the fuel tank or fuel cell. These systems use a lift pump to fill a resevoir which is not effected by aceclleration, braking, or hard corning.  Fuel Surge tanks deliver consistent fuel and allow you to scavenge fuel until your fuel tank is essencially empty. 

Some fuel tanks and fuel cells can begin seeing signs of fuel starvation at 1/4 to 1/2 a tank. If this is the case for you, a collector or surge tank would be a perfect solution to help mitigate fuel starvation.  Contact our sales team to help diagnose your fuel starvation issues.
