Get on summit. They have a really nice search engine that will bring up anything specific like that.. from any of the various brands they carry.


I'm almost positive someone makes something too, because I have it coming off the bottom of my regulartor with a quick disconnect adapter, then another adapter to my -8 return

Plumb in a flex fuel sensor on the return line-I can do it a couple ways, but thought about doing it
at the return line on the reg.

I plan on plumbing mine after the injectors between the rail and regulator. I haven't come up with any reason that could cause an issue.

Other than NEVER install the sensor on the high pressure side.
Where can I find that info? I've read where a few guys have had more consistent readings in the feed.

I would love to take one apart to see the route the fuel takes thru it, and how it reads the fuel.

You could just buy the femal to female B nut fitting and use the -8 fitting you linked above. Seems sillt to put a -8 fitting on something with a 1/4 ID. It will restrict the fuel a ton. Put a -6 or -4 on it and run it in parallel on the return as mentioned.


Fitting





Will look similar to this on the return side.

It is 3/8 hardline. Can probmake around 1000 through an entire feedline in 3/8 line, this is a small section.

Weve put them on the return anyway though. I wouldnt bother with running parrallel unless running on feed and big power

It's more like $25 in fittings if you use ebay china stuff. 2 an6 "T" fittings and some push lock AN6 B nuts. Don't need the AN adaptors on the sensor. I use E85 and big pumps in everything so it's more of an issue. I'm sure at moderate power on pump gas it would be fine. Though I bet a 1/2 return feeding a 3/8 hardline sensor at the end will make pressure in the return.

My comment was to the actual parts involved in the pictured you posted, which is not budget stuff.
I appreciate what you have done on your build, but my I can't bring myself to use fleabay china stuff on my fuel sysyem. No hating, that's just my preference.
There are certainly different ways to plumb the sensor based on the vehicle and budget.

I hear ya, junker hot rodding isn't for everyone. I admit that's what I do. For a return line not seeing any real pressure I can't believe it would be an issue. I use them on the pressure side... at pretty high pressure and have yet to have any sort of issues with the china fittings. (pushlock even). Used hundreds of the things over the years with a perfect track record.
