Flow Conversion help

Hey guys,

After the fuel pump quit on my S-10 today I started looking at some new pumps. I needed to upsize anyway, but I was hoping to get some low rpm tuning done first. Oh well.

I need to know if someone can give me the multiplier to convert lbs/hr to gallons or liters/hr. I am trying to make sure I get enough pump for the injectors. They will flow 400 lbs/hr total so I need that about. I am thinking that it will take the mass of gasoline to calculate this, but I am not sure. I can not find a direct multiplier to use anywhere.

Thanks,

Chris

Yea, you will need gasoline weight to calculate this.

1 gallon of gasoline equals 5.8 to 6.5 lbs.

So 400 lbs/hr SHOULD be the same as either 68.965 gal/hr or 61.538 gal/hr according to the min/max given above.

65.251 gal/hr should be a general average flow for your injectors if this info is correct. Find a pump no less than that and you'll be screamin' down the road in no time.

Get someone else's opinion though, I'm just screwing around and tried to plug in some numbers. Hey, I bet Willy's would know. Good Luck man.
