Fuel flow meter homologated for 2014
10 January 2014 – Gill Sensors has announced that its Ultrasonic Fuel Flow Meter has been homologated by governing body the FIA, officially clearing its use in Formula 1 and the World Endurance Championship (WEC) from 2014 onwards.
Next season, Formula 1 will see its drivers limited to 100 kg of fuel for the entirety of a Grand Prix, with the standard flow meter in place to offer real-time data and accurately measure bi-directions fuel flow.
"Gill Sensors are thrilled to have been chosen to undertake this extraordinary venture and we are delighted that the FIA is confident in the performance and durability of the Ultrasonic Fuel Flow Meter." said Chairman Mike Gill.
"We would like to thank the FIA and all the teams for their backing which has been fundamental to the project."
The Gill flow meter will be homologated for use in Formula 1 for the expected duration of the new regulations.
