The plenum of an engine air manifold, coupled to engine cylinders, is provided with a fuel injector. A solenoid prevents supply of fuel to the plenum fuel injector during normal operation of the engine. Upon failure of the primary fuel system, solenoid opens to provide a fuel/air mixture via the manifold, to the engine cylinders, converting the manifold from a dry manifold to a fuel/air mixture manifold. The fuel bus of the primary fuel system preferably receives fuel from, and returns fuel to, a header tank, rather than directly from and to one or more ...
1. A redundant fuel system for use in conjunction with a primary fuel system, the primary system including an air manifold coupled to engine cylinders and to a central plenum, the primary system providing separate fuel injectors for each cylinder during normal operation of the primary fuel system, the secondary system comprising:fuel input device for delivering fuel to said plenum; a control for preventing flow of fuel to said fuel input device during normal operation of said primary fuel system, said control comprising a solenoid; and a flow rate contro...
