continuous-flow fuel injection system


continuous-flow fuel injection system
The system for measuring fuel and delivering it under low pressure to the outside of the intake valve. This fuel, along with air necessary for combustion, is pulled into the cylinder when the intake valve opens. In spite of its name, it is not truly a fuel injection system.
