Fuel temperature from flex fuel sensor

Post by Slowie » Mon Nov 20, 2017 10:57 am

Hi

The ability to read fuel temperature from a flex fuel sensor would be great, and would save an extra input, in cases where fuel temperature is required.

Thanks

If Syvecs/Life Racing can't do this, I could add it to our Mini Expansion Unit easily enough Image

I think all the flex fuel sensors incorporate this already ?

Not sure whether the ecu is normally configured to accept it though ?

No, the ECUs don't have support for fuel temp. I asked ages ago.

Also, not all flex fuel sensors measure temperature.

The Life F88 has a Fuel Correction Multiplier table for Fuel Temp. I figured the Syvecs line would have the same?

Its support for interpreting fuel temperature from the flex sensor that the ecu doesn't have.

As Tim says, you can supply fuel temperature from a regular analogue input....just not via the inbuilt output on a digital flex fuel sensor.
