 That's an extreme example, of course, but the same principles apply to fuel (with the injector being your funnel). ​ Ethanol can be very different from gasoline and even gasoline from one station can be different from another station. That's an extreme example, of course, but the same principles apply to fuel (with the injector being your funnel). ​ Ethanol can be very different from gasoline and even gasoline from one station can be different from another station.

-So clearly fluid properties need to be taken into account when calculating volumetric flow figures. ​ This effect also appears to depend on the injector type/size too!  Like everything else injector related, this just isn't as easy as it seems like it should be at first.+So clearly fluid properties need to be taken into account when calculating volumetric flow figures. ​ This effect also appears to depend on the injector type/size too!
