Influenced by the trend toward reducing greenhouse gases represented by Kyoto Protocol, provisions on fuel consumption standard is stricter every year in transportation sector as regulations directly contributing to reduction of exhaust gases. As a result, efforts of automobile manufacturers to reduce fuel consumption are made more actively and quickly and therefore the technical development to realize low fuel consumption requires such a fuel consumption measurement system that enables highly accurate measurement. This article introduces our fuel flowmeter which satisfies the request for direct fuel consumption measurement with high  accuracy and the important points to fuel consumption measurement at the viewpoints of sensor and measurement system.
