Along with technological advances, there are 2 types of combustion systems in cars today, namely injection cars and carburetor. There must be a comparison between the two. The injection system is equipped with various sensors so that it can work in measuring fuel consumption and air during the combustion process.
Meanwhile, the carburetor system relies on piston movement to ensure the required volume of gasoline, so there are no definite dimensions. However, both systems work together to combine air with gasoline to create combustion in the engine compartment.
However, the carburetor system works by Bernoulli’s law, namely, the ratio of pressure due to the movement of the piston. While injection uses a sensor system that is regulated by the ECU (Electronic Control Unit).
Now to be clear, here are the differences between the injection system and the carburetor, quoted from various sources.
In terms of fuel consumption, because the injection system already uses sensors so that their fuel consumption is more precise, according to needs.
While the carburetor has difficulty measuring the ratio of fuel to air mixing and only relies on piston movement.
On the other hand, the carburetor system has a choke system that serves to limit the flow of air before reaching the carburetor. This process usually occurs when the engine has just been started.
The low temperature causes the gasoline to condense in the manifold chamber so that only a small amount of gasoline enters the combustion chamber.
In the injection system there is no choke lever because there are injectors that automatically open longer so that more gasoline comes out when the engine temperature is low.
Both carburetor and injection systems, both require regular service. Carburetor cleaning is usually attempted during an oil change or every 4,000 kilometers.
Meanwhile, the injection engine service does not need to be very frequent, at least every motorbike has traveled 10, 000 kilometers or when changing the oil.
It’s just that, the injection system motor service is more expensive because the Suzuki engine has a more difficult process with the presence of electronic components.
