Ferrari to use direct fuel injection

DFI was first used over 50 years ago though.

Nice one..

Ferrari is implementing direct injection in an effort to make its cars more environmentally friendly.

It will really help to make this more lovable..

direct injection petrol cars consume bit less fuel yes but they emit a LOT of particles, even more than diesel engines!

http://www.transportenvironment.org/...inal_T%26E.pdf

Vehicle tests show that without the use of gasoline particulate filters (GPF), more particles are emitted from gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines than diesels. On the road, GDI vehicles may therefore exceed future European emissions limits the Euro 6 standard. The cost of a filter to eliminate particle emissions is low (around 50), with no fuel economy penalty. Despite this, carmakers are declining to fit filters to GDI cars thereby worsening
urban air pollution. T&E calls upon carmakers to ensure GDI cars minimize their particle emissions by fitting filters.
