VOLVO-PENTA DIRECT FUEL INJECTION TECHNOLOGY

IN YOUR BOAT

THE DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU MOVE TO DIRECT FUEL INJECTION TECHNOLOGY

A fuel injector is located in the cylinder head and squirts fuel directly into each combustion chamber at 2,250 psi. This high pressure creates very small fuel droplets, which ignite quickly and burn efficiently. The system operates at a lower temperature than conventional port injection, so the air charge stays cooler and denser. Direct-injection also allows the mixture to be leaner, so less fuel is required to produce the equivalent horsepower of a conventional port-injection fuel system. Fuel delivery can be very precisely controlled to improve economy and reduce emissions, because less fuel escapes out the open exhaust valve. Direct-injection also permits a rather high 11:1 compression ratio, which improves torque output, key to marine performance. Despite this high compression ratio, all of these new engines can operate on 87 octane gasoline.

STANDARD FEATURES ON EACH VOLVO PENTA ENGINE

Slide VARIABLE VALVE TIMING We refused to accept the compromise of a fixed camshaft. Variable valve timing now allows each movement of the intake and exhaust valve to be optimized for speed and load. You'll have higher torque and acceleration across the full range of RPM's. Slide LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINUM BLOCK Our new lightweight aluminum blocks weigh 41 lbs less than older cast-iron models. Low-friction, lightweight pistoons, and a cast aluminum oil pan help us provide up to 15% improvement in the power-to-weight ration Slide FRESH WATER COOLING It's no secret, engines with fresh water cooling last longer and run better. Our closed loop cooling system eliminates exposure to saltwater and pollutants, providing greater engine durability and higher resale value. Slide DIRECT FUEL INJECTION The move from multi-port technology to direct injection, means atomized gas enter the combustion chamber at 2250 psi. Compression ratios of up to 11.5 - 1 create a cleaner burn with fewer emissions. So more energy is realized from each drop of fuel. Slide WIDEBAND OXYGEN SENSORS Our new wideband oxygen sensors read a greater range of air/fuel values. Now engine performance is optimized regardless of altitude, weather, or variable fuel blends.

ELECTRONIC

VESSEL CONTROL

The EVC system connects and manages the internal communications between the engine and driveline, levers and display screen – giving vessel owners integrated functionality and simpler operation.
