Fuel meter of the future

University essay from Lunds universitet/Förbränningsfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

Abstract: The purpose of this master thesis is to evaluate technologies that could measure parameters of interest to Dover Fueling Solutions, a fuel pump company. A list of interesting measuring technologies has been compiled and compared. Spectrometry was chosen as extra interesting, as it had the potential to differentiate fuels by different octane ratings, but also measure concentrations of different contents. A simplified spectrometer circuit setup was constructed and tested on different types of fuels. However, the results did not unambiguously show that different octane rated fuels could be differentiated. This was probably due to construction flaws. The project has shown the simplicity of the technology, but needs further testing and evaluation. The technology is definitely relevant to Dover Fueling Solutions and has potential to generate positive value for the company and future costumers.
