Abstract:
An apparatus and a method are provided for an inline fuel pump for conveying liquid fuel from a fuel source to an intake of an internal combustion engine. The inline fuel pump operateswith various fuels, such as gasoline, diesel, biodiesel, gasoline-ethanol blends, as well as commonly used fuel additives. The inline fuel pump comprises an inlet placed into fluid communication with the fuel source. An outlet of the inline fuel pump is placed into fluid communication with the intake. An electric motor coupled with an internal liquid pump convey liquid fuel from the inlet to the outlet. The electric motor and the internal liquid pump are housed within a sealed case configured to protect the electric motor and the liquid pump from an exterior environment. Power leads convey electrical power from an electrical system of the vehicle to the electric motor.
