The Rise of GDI Fuel PumpsCarter Fuel Systems / Industry Trends, GDI
High pressure gasoline direct injection (GDI) is steadily gaining momentum in the automotive industry. Discover the benefits.
In recent years, the focus of the automotive industry has increasingly shifted towards improved engine efficiency and fuel economy. It’s no wonder then that high pressure gasoline direct injection has grown in popularity.
High pressure gasoline direct injection (GDI) is a type of fuel injection, where gasoline is highly pressurized and delivered directly into the combustion chamber of each cylinder, rather than the standard multi-point fuel injection that delivers fuel into the intake tract or cylinder port.
When injecting gasoline at a high pressure directly into the engine’s combustion chamber, the air-fuel mix creates a spiraling motion and higher cooling in the combustion chamber, which ultimately results in higher compression for greater efficiency and power. The injector inside the cylinder likewise gives the engine more control over the amount of fuel and injection timings, therefore wasting less fuel.
As a response to this emerging industry trend, Carter partnered with trusted suppliers to offer high pressure gasoline direct injection (GDI) fuel pumps for customers interested in increased fuel efficiency and higher power output.
Carter high pressure gasoline direct injection (GDI) fuel pumps are suitable for most combustion gasoline direct injection engine programs. Typical applications include Ford® EcoBoost®, GM EcoTec, Mazda Skyactiv® and across multiple BMW, Hyundai, Kia® and Mercedes Benz® models.
