Fuel Starvation

During a longer right hand corner with a half empty fuel tank and punching the accelerator, the throttle cut out again.  The fuel pick up is on the right side of the tank, and there is only one baffle in the tank at the middle.  I think pump is running dry or getting air in the line in these cases.  I will need to keep the fuel tank topped up, until I sort some modifications out with the tank.

Some ideas for better fuel tank performance:

  • Well at fuel pickup
  • Baffle around fuel pickup
  • More baffles
  • Fuel Cell Foam
