Comparing a fuel injection system to a fuel carburettor system for a piston engine, the fuel injection system
  • A
    is less prone to induction-system icing.
  • B
    increases the chances of cylinders overheating due to uneven fuel distribution.
  • C
    has a worsened fuel economy.
  • D
    has a decreased acceleration response.
Fuel injection systems provide uniform and reliable fuel delivery, better icing protection, and quicker throttle response. They work on the principle of feeding fuel under pressure to the engine, therefore they don’t need a venturi in the air intake. Without any ducts that inevitably reduce the temperature by their nature, the fuel injection systems are less prone to air intake icing than the traditional carburetor fuel systems.
