Studies carried out by the firm of Pierburg have shown that under the same conditions there is practically no difference in the fuel consumption of carburettor and injection engines. With respect to performance, pollutant emission, handling and operation with purpose-built and adequately heated inlet pipes, carburettor engines may be compared with competing systems. The deciding factor in the performance of the carburettor is the inlet pipe, particularly its optimum design and preheating. If the design can be optimized, the engine will have the same performance as an injection engine. Because of body design there is often not so much room around the inlet pipe as is the case with injection engines. Because of this only one injection facility can be incorporated in some cars, and this is more expensive than a carburettor, ie, if the latter is adequately heated, particularly in the cold phase, it is no (TRRL)
