The fuel injection systems in vehicles has undergone constant minor changes in a quest to enhance the power output, smooth run of engines, the mileage of the vehicle and also mainly to achieve higher percentage of fuel combustion so as to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.

The increased trend of downsizing the engines in passenger cars has led to development of latest fuel injection systems.

Delphi’s 350 bar GDi (Gasoline Direct injection) is capable of reducing the particulates by 70%. It also improves the performance by providing higher output. This prompted the Bosch and Magneti Marelli who developed the 350 bar GDi for high performance cars.  


The fuel injectors which carry the fuel at high pressure in droplets form is a key component in the system. The fuel pumps too help in increasing the fuel efficiency by sending high pressure fuel and at high flow rate. The electrification of the system meant the ECU and sensors are witnessing the high demand. The ECU optimises the fuel injection amount; it controls the injectors independently in order to increase the injection accuracy. The sensors used are the Air/Fuel (A/F) ratio sensors, fuel pressure sensor and crankshaft position sensors.


Based on the technology the direct ignition system has witnessed highest growth and occupies larger share in the market. The direct ignition system gives better fuel efficiency and emits a lot lesser HC gases making it the popular among others. This system achieves better fuel chamber cooling.

The MPFI technology although are still found in few variants of the car models, this system has high penetration in the two wheelers. The MPFI has become pattern in most of the motorcycles.

The below chart shows the market share of different injectors:

Toyota has pioneered the dual injection engines wherein both the port and direct injection are engines are incorporated; this enhances the power of the vehicle. These engines when running at low rpm and during starting fuel is injected by both the injectors and when the engine is runs at high rpm direct injectors handle the fuel delivery.


Direct ignition system is mostly found in the top selling cars. However the Ford F150 and Toyota Rav4 come with the dual Injection system. Ford in US holds the highest share in dual ignition system and has installed is most of its models. The average size of the engine in US is 2.5L and hence it requires a high pressure injector which helps in clean combustion and reduces the exhaust gases.


Ever since Euro 6 and subsequent standards came into effect the emphasis on the GDi has been witnessed. The direct injection is incorporated in every top selling car in the region. The European engines are smaller of average 1.5L and downsizing is the reason for this. This


China has the highest share of gasoline engines and has almost eliminated the diesel engines among passenger cars. This has led to increased use of GDi in high performance cars such as Haval H6 and Toyota Corolla. However, some of the other top selling cars Lavida, Sylphy are running with MPFI engines.


One of the top selling cars Kia Seltos is powered with GDi. But the most of the other passenger cars come with MPFi. India holds the highest share of diesel engines among the top selling cars and thus CRDI is still finds a greater market share.

The implementation of BS-VI has resulted in major changes in the injection system in 2 wheelers in the region. The latest norm has made the electronic fuel injection mandatory and thus increasing the fuel injection penetration among 2 wheelers. The presence of highest number of 2 wheelers has boosted the MPFi segment.


Delphi automotive has developed a 500+ bar GDi which is capable of reducing the particulate emission by 50% and 1 % reduction in fuel consumption compared to the current existing 350 bar GDi. The 500+ bar GDi is expected to be equipped with the 2022-2023 car models.


  • Kawasaki is developing dual injection system for its motorcycle range.
  • Honda has lunched all its motorcycles and scooters with Programmed Fuel Injection(PGM-FI) feature a direct injection system.
  • Delphi has developed new DFI 21 micro valve fuel injectors, with 1.0 mm diameter of nozzle and is used for heavy-duty diesel engines.
  • Contnental AG has postponed the spin-off of Vitesco Technologies which offers gasoline and diesel injection system products.


Some of the market leaders in the fuel injection segment are Delphi (UK), Continental (Germany) and Bosch (Germany). 

Injection Fuel Systems is dominated by the Japanese market leaders Denso, Hitachi, Mikuni and Keihin.
