The selection of a fuel system for recreational vehicles requires a survey of all conditions that affect the flow of fuel mixture to the engine. The consideration of the carburetor as a separate entity related only to the engine does not fulfill the requirements for successful vehicle operation. All components from the air inlet to the exhaust outlet, and from the fuel tank to the engine inlet port, have a definite effect upon fuel mixtures. Tests showing the variations in fuel flow resulting from apparently minor changes in air inlet adaptors and exhaust header lengths illustrate the necessity of fuel system coordination with the completed end product.
