( Automotive engineering : Vehicle components , Engine, transmission, and exhaust )
The carburetion system has been refined to help the engine breathe better.
The purpose of carburetion is to provide a combustible mixture of fuel and air in the required quantity and
quality for efficient operation of the engine under all conditions.
The primary advantage of fuel injection over traditional carburetion is the ability of a fuel-injected engine to be unaffected by conditions such as temperature,
humidity, and altitude, which affect traditional carburetion.
