B&S Commercial Power Introduces Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI)
March 1st, 2007:
Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power has announced that it will offer its first engine equipped with Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) in 2007. The new gasoline-powered EFI model is an extension of the VanguardT 3/LC three cylinder, liquid-cooled commercial engine line.
Developed in conjunction with Daihatsu, a member of the Toyota Group, the VanguardT 3/LC EFI engine is capable of delivering increased fuel economy - up to 30-percent fuel savings, depending on duty cycle - with increased responsiveness at all engine speeds. The EFI system automatically adjusts engine setting in real time for quick, no-choke cold starts, and to compensate for altitude and environmental variables. This provides optimized power and performance in a wider variety of conditions.
"The new 3/LC EFI engine reaffirms our commitment to developing cutting-edge commercial power solutions that meet our customers' needs today, and into the future," said Doug Page, director of marketing at Briggs & Stratton Commercial Power. "Today's high fuel costs mean contractors are now placing a higher emphasis on equipment fuel efficiency than ever before. For these professionals, VanguardT 3/LC EFI-powered equipment can help reduce fuel costs while simultaneously increasing worker productivity through increased power and responsiveness."
Rated at 34 gross horsepower, the VanguardT 3/LC EFI engine provides the increased power demanded by modern commercial equipment applications. An advanced 32-bit Engine Control Unit (ECU) provides responsive performance with enhanced drivability. On-board diagnostics built into the ECU provide quick, accurate troubleshooting for reduced equipment downtime, and all ECU and EFI components in the VanguardT 3/LC system have been proven reliable in years of use in automotive applications.
The new engine is the latest addition to the VanguardT 3/LC line of three-cylinder, liquid cooled engines in the 18 to 34 gross horsepower range, in gas, diesel and turbo-diesel configurations.
