A delivery device for fuel to an internal combustion engine, which includes a fuel reservoir. After the engine is shut off or in the event of an accident, there is the danger that the pressurized fuel present in the fuel reservoir will escape from the delivery device. A blocking device is provided on the fuel reservoir, which after the engine is shut off or after an accident, the blocking device engages with an actuation rod that is provided with detent teeth, by means of an electromagnetically actuated locking pin and thus prevents a force impingement of a compression spring on the movable wall of the fuel reservoir. By use of the blocking devices the pressure in the fuel line is completely reduced even after the escape of small fuel quantities. The delivery device is suited for mixture-compressing internal combustion engines with externally supplied ignition.
