Gasoline Fuel-Injection System KE-Jetronic
Since their introduction, the KE-Jetronic systems have proved themselves in millions of automobiles.
The advantages inherent in fuel injection with regard to the demands for fuel economy, engine power, and not least of all for environmental compatibility, played a major part in this development.
Whereas an increase in engine power was the major consideration when the development work first started on gasoline fuel injection, we are today spurred on by the necessity to reduce fuel consumption and minimise toxic emissions.
Purely mechanical injection systems are unable to comply with these far-reaching stipulations. The mechanical K-Jetronic, which had already proven itself as a multi-point fuel-injection system, was therefore retained as the basic system, and uprated by means of electronics to make it more intelligent and more efficient.
This synthesis, comprising the mechanical basic functions coupled with electronic adaptation and optimization functions is the KE-Jetronic.
