FUEL INJECTION CATCHES FIRE AT GM

The advantages of the electronic throttle body fuel injection (TBFI) system over the conventional carburetors are assessed. General Motors plans to phase out carburetors mostly because of the reliability and repeatability of the TBFI system. TBFI will provide improved driveability and slight gains in fuel economy and emissions. It is also a simple system, compared to most other systems that will satisfy the stringent government demands. Throttle body fuel injection is a somewhat simplified version of traditional fuel in injection.
