Did you know that the 1990 Subaru Justy was the last vehicle with a carburetor to be sold in the US?

The latter part of the 20th century marked a significant change in the way automobile manufacturers built the fuel systems that powered the cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs they produced. The driving force of this change was a focus on reducing vehicle emissions, and carbureted engines were simply not as environmentally friendly as their fuel injected counterparts. Thus, the fuel injection revolution began, and today, most vehicles on the road take advantage of this cleaner, more efficient technology.

With new technology, however, comes new complexity. While fuel injection has done a lot to clean up the air around us, there has been an introduction of new challenges related to the maintenance and servicing of these new fuel systems.

Here at Thompson Automotive, we provide service and repair for fuel systems, from your fuel line to the injectors. We want to ensure that your auto is running as well as possible, by keeping fuel pumping to the engine properly, and by mixing the proper amounts of air and fuel to keep your pistons firing as they’re designed. We provide service for import vehicles at our auto shop here in Englewood, including Acura, Honda, Lexus, Mitsubishi, Subaru, and Toyota models. Please, feel free to give us a call to schedule service for your vehicle, or continue reading to learn more about your fuel system and our services.
