The scope of the article is to review various types of fuel adulteration detection sensors using various sensors based techniques. Petrol and diesel are major fuels used for transport and electricity generation globally. Now a day’s huge number of consumers are facing the fuel adulteration threat. Adulterants are added to these base fuels with other inexpensive boiling point range hydrocarbons containing more or less similar composition leading to modify and degrade the base fuel quality. These adulterants are added by the business vendors for their monetary profits. Sensing such adulterant in fuels is a principal task in the interest of the end consumer. We believe that this is first literature reviewing the sensor based techniques to estimate the adulteration in fuel samples.This review summarizes the various fuel adulterated sensors design and their function in detecting adulteration in fuel samples.
