Central port injection (CPI) was a new style of fuel injection first introduced in 1992. It was the primary fuel system in all the 4.3L V6 Vortec engines through 1995.

Individual fuel injectors are pricey, and the CPI concept was developed to reduce costs by using one fuel injector, which is centrally located within the manifold, to distribute fuel to each cylinder through nylon tubes with poppet valves.


In today’s workplace, unemployment numbers are soaring as many businesses cut back in the face of adversity. Health care expenses and increased taxes along with a poor economy have slowed growth and gross national product.

Purpose of a Fuel Pump

Fuel pumps have one primary purpose… to move fuel from the fuel tank to the combustion system. Today, almost all vehicles are manufactured with electric fuel pumps. Some even use an electric pump in the tank and a high pressure mechanical pump on the engine. However, it is not uncommon to find older vehicles equipped with low pressure mechanical fuel pumps.


Basic Parts of a Fuel Pump Module

A fuel pump module serves three purposes. The first is to filter the fuel in a gas tank to prevent any debris from getting into the fuel pump. The second is, obviously, to pump gasoline from the gas tank to the carburetor or fuel injection system. The third purpose is to send information to the instrument cluster for the fuel level gauge. To achieve these three functions, a fuel pump module needs a variety of components.


Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulations were first enacted in 1975 as a response to the oil crisis. Seeking to reduce the amount of oil consumed, the Department of Transportation set targets for the CAFE numbers that each carmaker had to achieve.

After languishing since 1990, new targets were announced in 2010 and again in 2012. In the first round of changes, the target was 35.5 mpg by 2016. The second round saw a goal of 54.5 mpg by 2025.
