Abstract

In winter, if the temperature of fuel oil or battery in vehicle is very low, its fuel efficiency is also very low. How to increase the efficiency of fuel oil / battery at a lower temperature environment for general vehicle?The invented system can automatically monitor the temperature (T) of fuel oil. When T is lower than a condition, a warm-up action is triggered to warm up fuel oil to a better temperature.

Method and System to Pre-Warm up Fuel Oil in Vehicle

1) What is the problem In winter, if the temperature of fuel oil or battery in vehicle is very low, its fuel efficiency is also very low. According to our experiments, considering the fuel efficiency at 27 degree as the baseline, the corresponding efficiency is degraded 12% at 0 degree for fuel oil vehicle (traditional car), 20% degrade for battery vehicle. And has 19% degrade at -18 degree for fuel oil vehicle, 29% degrade for battery vehicle.

How to increase the efficiency of fuel oil / battery at a lower temperature environment for general vehicle?

2) Main Idea The invented system can automatically monitor the temperature (T) of fuel oil. When T is lower than a condition, a warm-up action is triggered to warm up fuel oil to a better temperature.

3) How it works

In the invention, there are 8 key components: 1. Controller: control the warm-up action according to fuel oil temperature; 2. Controller switch: enable driver to turn on controller or off it; 3. Temperature sensor: place in the small fuel buffer to sense the temperature of oil 4. Warm-up switch: controlled by controller. Once it turns on, the warning-up process starts. 5. Heat booster: place around the small fuel buffer tank to warm it up. It can be water-based or electric 6. Battery: provide the energy to the warn-up system 7. Small fuel buffer tank: it is an optional component. A small buffer tank is placed...
