A fundamental problem with methanol fueled engines is poor cold startability and high formaldehyde emissions during engine warm-up. Direct injection has the potential to solve these problems. The design and development of an electronically controlled low pressure injector which provides an alternative to high pressure “diesel” type injection is reviewed.
