Gravity feed - Wikipedia
Gravity feed is the use of earth's gravity to move something (usually a liquid) from one place to another. It is a simple means of moving a liquid without the use of a pump. A common application is the supply of fuel to an internal combustion engine by placing the fuel tank above the engine, e.g. in motorcycles, lawn mowers, etc.

What is gravity feed system? -
With the tanks above the engine, gravity is used to deliver the fuel. A simple gravity feed fuel system is shown in Figure 1. The space above the liquid fuel is vented to maintain atmospheric pressure on the fuel as the tank empties. From there, it flows to the carburetor or to the primer pump for engine starting.
