English term or phrase: bulk fuel temperature
Ich habe gesehen, dass bulk fuel Treibstoff heißen kann, bulk temperature aber auch "mittlere Temperatur". Hier geht es um das Messen mit einer Kraftstofftemperatursonde. Was ist jetzt richtig??
ina
Kraftstofftemperatur
Explanation:
In automotive context, 'bulk fuel temperature' doesn't refer to the average, but to the temperature of the major quantity of the fuel system. German references don't translate 'bulk' specifically, but just refer to 'fuel temperature' > Kraftstofftemperatur, when talkin about fuel cooling, e.g. in common rail systems.
Thus, I would just translate as above and not worry about 'bulk', which doesn't lose the sense.

mittlere Treibstofftemperatur


Explanation:
Ina, der Alexander hat ja eigentlich recht, ich habe aber den Eindruck, dass es um den Treibstoff im Tank eines Autos geht und diese Sonde eben die Temperatur in allen Höhen und Tiefen prüft und dann ein Mittelwert angezeigt wird.

Vielleicht stimmts?
