Abstract : A engine fuel delivery system for vehicles under test, which effectively limits the quantity of fuel under pressurization at any given time during a test sequence of the vehicle's engine. The system thus effectively reduces the magnitude of an explosion which may be caused by pressurization of fuel, and thus the scale of any damage, associated with any inadvertent detonation of pressurized engine fuel.
