Fuel measurement


has someone succeeded in measuring fuel consumption of a heat burner through flukso ?

I was thinking to build a pulse timer for counting the running hours instead of the fuel consumption

1/ Most burners have a standardized plug complying to DIN 4791. A current/voltage sensor of some sorts should indeed allow you to time the number of running seconds. In the end, we could even have the FLM act as a timer.
2/ Converting running hours to liters should be possible by looking up or determining the flow (debiet) of the burner. However, this will only work with simple (i.e. old) burners. New ones are of the modulating type, meaning they do not have a fixed flow.
