Today’s Throwback Thursday topic: the history of the carburetor. What’s a carburetor, you ask? I’ve never heard of one you say. Well let’s get the history lesson started!
A Carburetor VS a Fuel Injection System
A carburetor is a device that blends air and fuel in the proper ratio for an internal combustion. It also controls the engine’s speed.
Today’s vehicles use computerized fuel injection systems instead of the carburetor. Computers allow the engine to operate at peak status. This allows the vehicle to start right away, even on cold days. On really cold days it is best to let your car run a couple of minutes. Cars really do not need to be warmed up all the way before driving. It just makes us feel warm and cozy!
Because carburetors are generally straightforward when it comes to repairing them, they are still being used in race cars and other motorsports. This ease of carburetor repairs allows the owners of the vehicles to tune them for their fuel needs.
