Direct Injection

What’s the Benefit?

Direct injection is more fuel efficient than port injection and helps reduce the cost of driving.

The Feature:

Direct injection can enhance an engine’s efficiency.

  • Traditional multi-port fuel-injection systems mix fuel and air in the engine’s intake ports before they enter the combustion chamber.
  • However, with the CR-V’s direct injection, fuel is sprayed directly into the combustion chamber.
  • This promotes a desirable “tumble motion” in the intake charge, making for better combustion and higher overall fuel efficiency.36
