GASOLINE INJECTION: A PROGRESS REPORT

Robert Bosch of Stuttgart, pioneers in fuel injection, recently announced new developments which now makes gasoline injection a serious challenge to the carburettor--even in the popular family car. The single point injection system for one of Chrysler USA's 1984 models does resemble a carburettor and the company is, in fact, jointly developing electronic carburettors with Pierburg. The development history of gasoline injection provided by Development Director, Otto Gloeckler at Bosch serves to put into perspective the different systems offered to OEMs by the company; this follows a brief account of recent updates.
