The third generation EA888 also for the first time features a dual fuel injection system
(Figure 8). Alongside a high-pressure direct-injection system with system pressure
increased from 150 to 200 bar, a low-pressure injection system has also been
integrated into the VTS (Variable Tumble System) flange which injects into the upper
area of the inlet ducts. Using the dual injection system allows the optimum fuel
injection to be selected in every load range (intake manifold injection under low loads
and direct injection under medium and high loads), so enabling a further reduction in
CO2 emissions while at the same time complying with future emission limits.
