  3. 3. Fuel Flow meter  The fuel flow meter is normally used only in multiengine aircraft.The system consists of a transmitter and an indicator. Thetransmitter is installed in the fuel inlet line to the engine, where itmeasures the rate of fuel flow. The transmitter is electricallyconnected to the indicator located in the cockpit. This gauge showsthe rate of fuel consumption in pounds per hour. 3
  4. 4. Types Of Fuel Flow Indicators Single Fuel Flow IndicatorDual Fuel Flow Indicator 4
  5. 5. Dual Fuel Flow Indicator  5
  6. 6. Single Fuel Flow Indicator  6
  7. 7. Fuel Pressure Gauge  The fuel pressure gauge indicates the pressure of the fuel entering the carburetor. This gauge may be included with the oil pressure gauge and the oil temperature gauge in one casing, called the engine gauge unit. Most aircraft today have separate gauges for these functions. The fuel pressure gauge is a differential pressure indicator 7
  8. 8. Fuel Pressure Gauge  8
  9. 9. Pressure Warning Signal  Consists of a pressure sensitive mechanism and a warning light. The warning mechanism has both a fuel and an air connection. 9
  10. 10. Fuel Temperature Indicator A means for checking the temperature of the fuel in the tanks and at the engine is provided on some turbine powered aircraft. During extreme cold, especially at altitude, the gauge can be checked to determine when fuel temperatures are approaching those at which there may be danger of ice crystals forming in the fuel. 10
