Fuel Injection (FI)

Fuel Injection equipped engine directly delivers fuel into the combustion chamber by the means of an injector. Fuel injection atomises the fuel through a small nozzle under high pressure. The system ensures smoother and more consistent and quick throttle response, hassle-free cold starting and easier adjustment to the ambient temperatures. It also helps in better fuel efficiency and less maintenance needs.
