Anyone that has needed to upgrade their fuel system in a modern Mopar may have come across one bottle neck in the fuel system, the flex fuel sensor. Bypassing or deleting the sensor has been the only workaround to flow more fuel. Good news, with Aeromotive’s new Flex Fuel Sensor Adapter, you can still keep your sensor and flow more fuel than before.
The flex fuel sensor is constantly monitoring your fuel’s ethanol content and adjusting the vehicles ignition timing, boost pressure, air/fuel and more. With todays inconsistent fuel at the pump, the flex fuel sensor could save your motor from catastrophe.
This is a much better and safer way of tuning than trying to change out carburetor jetting or testing your fuel every time you fill up. The down side is the flex fuel sensor can be restrictive in a high flow-fuel system.
Aeromotive is a leader in fuel systems and the Flex Fuel Sensor Adapter is just another reason proving why they are a leader. The adapter gives the fuel the ability to flow around the sensor through a ORB -10 inlet/outlet.
The adapter diverts the fuel through the sensor and then the rest of the demand of fuel will flow through the ORB -10 inlet/outlet. The flex fuel sensor will still be able to do its job, but when the fuel demand is high, the ORB -10 inlet/outlet can flow above 400 liters per hour.
The Flex Fuel Sensor Adapter is designed to work with part numbers 13577429, 13577379 and 13577394. Thanks to Aeromotive, upgrading your fuel system is easier than ever and can keep some of those great modern features. You can read Aeromotive’s full press release below.
Aeromotive, the leading aftermarket fuel systems and accessories manufacturer, has developed a new Flex Fuel Sensor Adapter to accommodate high-flow demands while still allowing the OEM Flex Fuel sensor to accurately read the ethanol-gasoline ratio in the fuel system at all times.
Ethanol requires 30% more volume compared to gasoline, and OEM Flex Fuel sensors commonly become a restriction point on high-flow fuel systems. The adapter allows a portion of the fuel to pass through the sensor while the remainder is diverted through a secondary channel with vastly increased flow capacity. This new sensor adapter is designed to work with OEM Flex Fuel sensors part numbers 13577429, 13577379 and 13577394, allowing fuel to flow above 400 liters per hour.
Aeromotive’s Flex Fuel Sensor Adapter features ORB -10 inlet and outlet ports that can be adapted to any size fuel line with a dual O-ring seal for the OEM Flex Fuel sensor’s 3/8-inch tube. The adapter’s body is constructed from 6061-T6 aluminum alloy with a bright-dip anodized finish and is sold preassembled as a body without the OEM sensor. Parts cannot be sold separately.
