Digital Fuel Measuring System with Distance to Zero and Fuel Fraud Indicator

Authors(2) :-Ch. Mani Kumar, Dr.R.B. Choudary

Most of the automobiles use analogue fuel gauge or digital fuel indicator which indicates level of fuel available in tank. Here user is unable to correctly estimate kilometres s/he can travel with the remaining fuel due to inaccurate information. Some fuel filling stations fraudulently fill less fuel by tampering their meters. This necessitates an advanced digital measuring system incorporated in the vehicle itself. The modified digital fuel measuring system presented in this paper addresses two issues: 1) indicating kilometres the vehicle can travel with existing fuel in tank and 2) independently measuring the fuel filled in the filling station. These features empower the user.
