Racers and serious street performance enthusiasts alike are at the Fuelab Digital Fuel Delivery display during the 2021 Performance Racing Industry show, many taking a keen interest in the new Pro Series range of fuel system components, including the 6 gallon-per-minute spur gear fuel pumps and related in-line fuel filters and fuel pressure regulators.
Fuelab’s Brian Paitz describes many of the benefits offered by these fuel delivery products.
“Primarily suited for all-out racing, the Pro Series spur gear fuel pump supports well over a 2,500 horsepower fuel delivery capacity for gasoline-based fuels,” explains Paitz. “It is also a solid performer for street fuel systems to meet the demands of E85 fuel applications, where enthusiasts like the pump’s speed control option.”
Paitz continues, “There are a lot of great features about this pump, including its DC brushless motor that reduces current draw and a spur gear pumping mechanism that is compatible with gasoline, diesel, ethanol, and methanol. The pump’s electronics feature an internal speed controller for variable flow operation and 12- to 24-volt vehicle electrical system compatibility.”
Fuelab has updated the 565 Series high flow regulator to handle extreme capacities compared to its 515/525 Series regulators. The new regulator uses a ½-inch return orifice and -10AN ports that achieve a bypass capability over 5 GPM at 5 psi. This regulator can handle blow-through carbureted applications well over 1800 HP, and for EFI applications using belt-driven fuel pumps.
Paitz describes the new regulator, “We have revamped this regulator with a new look, along with four different pressure ranges covering applications between 4 and 80 psi.”
The Fuelab engineers have also been busy with the new 868-Pro Series in-line fuel filters capable of a 10 GPM rating. “A lot of fuel filters we offer are rated to 200 to 300 GPH filters, which work well, but now with a 360 GPH pump, we want to offer a filter with a capacity to match with a minimal pressure drop,” Paitz explains.
