A fuel consumption gauge for tractors and self propelled agricultural machinery for the optimization of design and operational parameters



A fuel consumption gauge for tractors and self propelled agricultural machinery for the optimization of design and operational parameters



Agrartechnik 34(10): 441-442



The measuring device described consists of a round glass container connected below to the pipe from the tank to the fuel pump and above to the air space in the tank. The device signals the beginning and end of a set fuel volume, so that the throughput integral or work performed can be measured during this time interval. After the measuring time is completed, the measuring volume is automatically refilled. The volume in the glass container is measured by light barriers above and below it.
