GDI: Gasoline Direct Injection Engines

Gasoline Direct Injection = More Power, Better Efficiency!   While it’s true that direct injection engines (GDI) develop more power and produce lower emissions, it is also true that there are some maintenance challenges that have plagued the design for many years.   The evolution from carburetor to fuel injection (which was invented in the 1920’s) took until the 1980’s when virtually all new gasoline powered cars and light trucks were fuel injected.  The move to fuel injection increased fuel efficiency, lowered emissions, and enhanced reliability. Instead of the engine pulling the in the fuel, the system would deliver a precise amount of gasoline at the moment of the intake stroke.   Fuel injection systems can be prone to clogged injectors which led to better gasoline additives and maintenance services designed to “clean” the injectors and fuel intake system.  We recommend an Air Induction service as routine maint ... read more
