Housings for Flex Fuel Sensors

With the growing trend of environmental awareness, vehicles equipped with E85 flex fuel engines are gaining popularity in a growing number of countries. E85 is a fuel mixture that contains 15% petrol and 85% ethanol, which is derived from corn, sugar cane and other plants. It significantly reduces carbon dioxide emissions.

The actual share of E85 within a vehicle must be constantly monitored to ensure that the ignition and injection point inside the engine can be adjusted. This is accomplished with flex fuel sensors, which measure the ethanol to gasoline ratio of the fuel in the fuel line to the injectors.

Flex fuel sensors are installed directly into the fuel pipe where they are protected from the aggressive environmental conditions by our glass-to-metal sealed housing components.
