Title:
SYSTEM FOR SUPPLYING FUEL TO ENGINE EQUIPPED WITH MINIMUM FUEL LEVEL DETECTOR
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2005220911
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide a fuel supply system for a vehicle, enabling refueling and replacement of a fuel container at efficient timing.

To detect the amount of fuel remaining in a replacement type fuel container or a fixed tank in the system for supplying liquid fuel to an engine, a positive temperature coefficient (PTC) probe 16 of which resistance value is changed proportional to temperature is placed in a fuel supply line 12 between a fuel supply source and the engine. The PTC probe 16 detects the change in a phase from a liquid phase to a gas phase of the liquid fuel in the fuel supply line 12, and delivers an electrical signal to an electronic circuit. When detecting the phase change, the electronic circuit triggers a visual or audible signal.
