Combustion engines operate on a fairly simple principle. The energy used to run the engine is obtained by burning gasoline in the presence of air. It is therefore necessary that there is a given air / fuel ratio for the combustions to take place. Too much air or not enough, and the combustion take place normally.
What is the flowmeter for?
In principle, the flowmeter is a particularly important part of the engine. It rigorously monitors the amount of fuel present during combustion, to transmit useful data to the ECU. The ECU may therefore decide to inject more or less gasoline into the combustion ratio. The flowmeter's mission is to guarantee an optimal dosage of the air/fuel ratio.
In fact, however, the flowmeter may misread the data. The consequence is that the vehicle will begin to consume too much fuel at a normal rate, or that it will provide less power because of inefficient combustion. Major disadvantages that undermine the longevity of the engine.
Why consider deleting it?
An engine that cannot go beyond 2,000 or 3,000 rpm, blockages, breakdowns, smoke in the muffler, or failure to starting the vehicle- these are all problems that can be related to flowmeter malfunction.
Even when it’s not faulty, some flow meters use a constant regulation system. They thus impose automatic restrictions on the vehicle, depending on the circumstances. The suppression of the flowmeter thus has various advantages:
- Constant power gain in all circumstances, which results in
- A better grip of the vehicle; and
- Better overall performance, especially on difficult terrain.
