Builder Tip #56 from HomebuiltHELP 
A combined Fuel Pump-Header Tank
for Fuel Injected Engines
Here is an interesting way to consider plumbing your homebuilt's fuel injected engine!

This week's video Tip shows Jan from Viking Aircraft Engines providing us with a unique fuel plumbing system that is applicable to some of the popular fuel injected aircraft engines.

Borrowing from modern automobile fuel injection designs, the strategy shown in this video uses Jan's in-tank fuel pumps which eliminate the need for external regulators, return lines, pre-filters and header tanks. The pumps are naturally cooled by residing within the aircraft's fuel tanks (or purposed pump/ header tanks). Lots of external fuel plumbing parts are eliminated as, for example, the fuel pump module provides the proper pressure with its built in regulator.

Watch the video and decide for yourself if this new product has a place in your aircraft's fuel delivery design!
