The Amazing Holley HydraMat

By: Alex Healey | 12/17/2014 < Back to Motor Life Home
Holley’s patent pending design solves the problems associated with traditional fuel pick-ups in stock fuel tanks as well as racing fuel cells. During hard cornering, acceleration, stopping, inclines, and low fuel conditions fuel runs away from the fuel pick up which introduces air into the system resulting in poor engine performance and even stalling. Surface tension and fluid wicking are the secrets of the HydraMat’s amazing ability to draw fuel from nearly any area that has contact with fuel and store in the internal reservoir. As an area of the HydraMat is uncovered, the tiny pores of the media seal off through surface tension, forcing fuel to be contained in the reservoir and drawn from other areas of the mat where fuel continues to be available. The sheer size and coverage area of the HydraMat allows it to pull fuel from virtually any area in the tank or cell eliminating the need for specialty reservoirs and pick up pumps saving cost and greatly reducing complexity. The Hydramat will be available in various sizes to accommodate different tank sizes and openings. Square, rectangular and “X” shaped mats will be available to provide easy installation thru various sending unit access holes or fuel cell cover plates. Retrofit devices will be available for stock tank vehicles to ease installation of aftermarket EFI retrofit kits like the Holley Terminator EFI system. To see the entire HydraMat lineup, CLICK HERE.
