What is an anti-starvation loop?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I use a 'Duke Fox' anti-starvation loop everywhere I can. It really does work on a non-pumped engine!
I found one reference to this and could not google an explanation.

Anyone have a link they'd like to share?

Re: What is an anti-starvation loop?

Don't know about a link, but the only purpose for this rig I can think of is to act like a small "Reservoir" of fuel close to the motor, there to maintain a supply to the motor in case G-Forces exposed the clunk in the tank or decreased the head pressure.

Both of these would be short-duration events. This would not counter a bad installation or prevent you from leaning out as your fuel level dropped in the tank.
