Fuel Injection Carnew discovery made by researchers at Temple University in Philadelphia has shown that by sending an electric charge through fuel on its way to a car’s cylinders, the gas becomes 10% thinner. The thinner gas means smaller droplets, more surface area, and a quicker and more efficient burning process. The test subject was a Mercedes Benz 300D and the car jumped from 32 mpg to 38 mpg after the charge was initiated. The best part about this new type of fuel injection is that it can be added on to any existing gas or diesel powered vehicle. It’s only going to cost around $50 per piston, and multiple car manufacturers are already looking to license the product. Don’t be surprised if you have the option to pop one of these under the hood at your next tune-up.
