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.
