Fuel systems manufacturers must have confidence in the reliability and durability of their fuel systemscomponents to stay competitive. Stringent quality and safety requirements mandate these systems meet specific requirements throughout the entire product lifecycle, from development to validation.

We work with many automotive OEM’s and Tier 1 customers to provide robust and efficient fuel systems components testing that help them meet their requirements and the test specifications that are set within relevant standards.

Sterling Performance is a leader in the fuel system testing of fuel systems for the transportation industry, covering a wide range of automotive and military applications. The components we test include fuel hose testing and connectors, coolant pump testing, EV coolant pump testing, fuel pump testing, fuel module testing, coolant hose testing, fluid hose testing, automotive hose testing, filters, filler caps, injectors, and tanks.

Fuel system components that fail to meet industry standards and requirements can cost millions in product recalls and erode consumer confidence. Sterling’s fuel system components testing gives you the assurance that the components in your vehicles are safe, function as designed and are compliant.
