    Fuel Injector Animation

    A Fuel injector is a mechanical means of metering fuel into an internal combustion engine. In modern automotive applications, fuel metering is one of several functions performed by an "engine management system".
    For gasoline engines, carburetors were the predominant method to meter fuel before the widespread use of fuel injection. However, a wide variety of injection systems have existed since the earliest usage of the internal combustion engine.
    The primary functional difference between carburetors and fuel injection is that fuel injection atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle under high pressure, while a typical carburetor relies on the vacuum created by intake air rushing through it to add the fuel to the airstream.
    The fuel injector is only a nozzle and a valve: the power to inject the fuel comes from further back in the fuel supply, from a pump or a pressure container.
