i put all of my posts in the correct forums.

does a fuel injected engine get better gas mileage than an engine w/a carb?

I don' know for sure, but I would think so, since fuel injection is electronic and computerized (new fuel injection anyways) and it can be much more precise with gas flow than a carb...

Carb = More fuel flow.
EFI = More acurrate fuel distribution.
