“How exactly is fuel supplied to an ICE vehicle?”

 

Oil is what keeps old-fashioned internal-combustion engine vehicles going. If it wasn’t for a constant supply of this dangerous liquid, then all of the cars on the road would freeze up! However, how exactly is fuel supplied to a vehicle’s internal combustion engine? Well, let’s use our engineering mindsets to find out. An internal combustion engine is housed in a cylinder. And naturally, if we open up ports to this cylinder, then we can let fluids in. So what if we were to create an opening that would allow us to inject fuel when we need it? Well, this is known as a fuel injection system and is one of the most fundamental components of a car system.
