					Fuel Injections

In a combustion engine, fuel injections are necessary so the right amount
of air can be mixed with the fuel. This is very common in vehicles that
have been made in the past 20 years. Earlier vehicles before the 1990’s
still rely upon the carburetor for this process to take place. Fuel
injectors work better though and much easier. They also make sure that
the wear and tear on the engine is kept to a minimum. Another reason for
them is to help reduce the amount of emissions into the environment that
are harmful to us.

There are different designs out there for fuel injections that are based
on the type of fuel that will be used in the engine. The two most common
ones are gasoline that is either unleaded or regular. They are also
common with many types of diesel fuel engines as well. Fuel injections
are electrically operated and they are able to open and close the valve
several times in a matter of seconds.

The timing of how long a fuel injection valve will stay open depends on
the type of vehicle. Some need more fuel to get into the engine at one
time so it will be timed differently than one that needs less fuel to be
operational. Also, the faster you operate a vehicle the more fuel it will
need. So when you have your foot down on the gas pedal you will cause the
fuel injections to remain open longer.

There are sensors located at various places around your engine. The are
able to read the information from your vehicle and determine how these
fuel injections should work. If they aren’t working right your vehicle
may not be able to function like it should. It can be very expensive to
get this type of problem with your vehicle fixed. The electronic fuel
injections may need to be replaced as well as those sensors in order for
it to work correctly again.

Manufacturers continue to work very hard to improve the benefits from
fuel injections. They are involved in research so that they can make them
more fuel efficient. They also have been experimenting with alternative
methods of fuel so that we can preserve our natural resources.
