Building a fuel meter

Unread postAuthor: wyz2285 » Fri Feb 01, 2013 2:09 pm

Well I decided the other day to build myself a decent fuel meter setup. Currently I got a steel bottle from a friend, tested it to 20bar, should be fine with propane, the air hose and fittings are rated to 20 bar as well. I added a flow control valve on the tank, also works as a on/off valve. I refill the tank from a 11kg propane tank.
I also selected witch valve to distribute the fuel and adding air to the chamber (yes this system is for my on going 3/4 piston valve hybrid).
Will progressively post updates, anything special I should know about propane before I get myself blow up :lol: ?

Ill add on a lot stuff later, like a gauge and pressure relief valve. But the only one I could find only holds 8 bar
