PRINCIPLES GASOLINE/DIESEL FUEL SYSTEMS - OD1620 - LESSON 1/TASK 2
Describe the principles, construction, and function of gasoline
Within a selfstudy environment and given the subcourse text, without
Within two hours
No supplementary references are needed for this task.
This task illustrates the function of a gasoline fuel system. It will
describe the principles and function for the following components of this
system: fuel tank, fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel tank ventilation system,
intake manifold, air filter, carburetor, carburetion choke system, and
related carburetion components.
a. Purpose. The fuel tank is for storage of gasoline in liquid form.
The location of the fuel tank is dependent upon using an area that is
protected from flying debris, shielded from collision damage, and not
subject to bottoming of the vehicle. A fuel tank can be located just about
anywhere in the vehicle that meets these requirements.
b. Construction. Fuel tanks take many forms in military vehicles such
as those described below.
