A fuel surge tank (FST) is designed to prevent starvation to the engine on vehicles with inadequate fuel tank baffling. The surge tank also provides a quick and easy way to upgade any standard fuel system without the need to modify the stock fuel tank or pump. It is also an excellent fueling solution for vehicles installing large fuel demand power upgrades such as forced induction.
HOW A FST WORKS
The volume of fuel inside the surge tank acts as a buffer to always keep the FST pump supplied with fuel. This volume is maintained by the main fuel tank's pump as well as the fuel returning from the fuel pressure regulator. Excess fuel in the surge tank is returned back to the vehicle's main fuel tank.
All adapter fittings on top of the FST are 6AN (9/16"-18) male.
1. The internal FST pump directly feeds the fuel rail(s), through the green 6AN bulkhead fitting. The pump outlet fitting is available in -6AN male size only.
2. The 3 black (interchangeable) 6AN ORB fittings are used for the following.
a. Fuel entering the FST (from the lift pump)
b. Fuel overflowing and leaving the FST (to main tank)
c. Fuel returning from the fuel pressure regulator
1. An internal flow deflector prevents fuel foam and aeration on all 3 ports.
2. The pumps mount internally using tubing that is gasoline, ethanol, and methanol resistant.
The stainless electrical studs easily handle the high current demand that compact multi-pin bulkhead connectors lack. These serviceable connections are hermetically sealed and impervious to all standard and exotic fuels. Non conductive anodized aluminum acorn nuts are provided to prevent any accidental short circuiting. Electrical hardware is included for the fuel pump. Furthermore, the in-tank wiring is insulated with high quality chemically resistant ETFE. Relay kits, such as 17-0031, are recommended to drive these new internal fuel pump.
