All our fuel products are manufactured with the requirement that they will be able to handle alcoholic fuels such as ethanol. All internal surfaces are anodized and we use o-rings that are resistant to alcohol. Be sure to follow our service instructions on products such as fuel filters that may have alternative instructions.

FPR100s are suitable for 200-700 horsepower, FPR100m for 500-1200 horsepower, and FPR100x for 700-2000+ horsepower. All three are safe for all types of fuel, including alcoholic fuels such as ethanol.
Can I mount the CFC Unit to my aftermarket fuel cell?
The Nuke Performance CFC Unit is made to fit the standardized 24-bolt pattern in 6x10". This size is common among most fuel cell manufacturers such as ATL, Fuel Safe, Pyrotect, Jaz, Premier Fuel Systems, Radium, and many others. The different versions of the CFC Unit require different minimum mounting depths, the low profile CFC Unit (150-05-201) requires 219mm, and the high profile versions require a minimum depth of 197mm. We offer an aluminum flange that makes it possible to bolt the CFC Unit to a custom-manufactured fuel cell that uses this standard pattern. You can either weld it to your aluminum cell or copy the pattern to your top sheet and bolt the CFC Unit to it putting the top sheet in between the flange and the CFC Unit. The CFC Unit arrives with a Viton gasket (safe for all types of fuels), which fits perfectly for custom fuel cell applications.
How do I know which fuel level sender I should choose?
The Nuke Performance CFC Unit let you mount a universal fuel level sender to your aftermarket fuel cell. We offer a high-quality level sender that is available in 0-90 Ohms (76-6 Ohms / 240-33 Ohms available on request) version and in many different length options. The most commonly used length is 8" (used for ATL 30, 45, 60, and 80-liter Saver cells) and 9" (used for Alucell 20, 40, and 60 liter, and Pyrotect 10, 12, 15, 18, 22 gallons cells) length. You can see available fitment here: view fitment guidé.
If you want to install the fuel level sender to a fuel cell that is not listed in the fitment list, you take the measure from the top of the flange, all the way down to the bottom of the lid, then subtract 10mm, select the level sender that is the closest in length to that measurement. You must choose one that does not exceed the final measurement with the 10mm subtracted.
How come my fuel level sender doesn´t fit the CFC Unit bolt pattern?
All the Nuke Performance CFC Unit is equipped with a fuel level sender unit mounting point with a symmetrical 5 bolt hole pattern. The CFC Unit is delivered with an adapter plate that converts the bolt pattern into an asymmetrically 5 bolt hole pattern. This lets you choose between a wide variety of level senders from all the commonly used manufacturers. The fuel level senders delivered by Nuke Performance all need the adapter plate, also other common level senders such as those from VDO need the adapter plate. If the adapter plate is nowhere to be found, you can order a spare one, visit the product page.
