Who would not want a transportation that’s eco-friendly, quick response and fuel efficient! Specially now that price of gasoline is skyrocketing again.
Is 55.7 kilometer per liter gas mileage good or not? 😀
Well, Yamaha made this all possible by launching the All-New Yamaha Mio Soul-i last week during the 2012 Yamaha International Motorshow at the Mall of Asia. This is the first scooter of its kind that is equipped with FI Technology or Fuel-Injection which Yamaha called YM Jet FI.
So basically what is F.I. Technology
“An intelligent Fuel Supply System that has a computer (ECU) that calculates injection duration, injection timing and ignition timing based on received signal from sensors according to temperature or environmental air conditions”
or in a layman terms, this would be the scenario
After an hour of an outdoor activity and sun exposure, you felt thirsty. Your brain urgently identifies your need and its objective is to quench your thirst. That is why it will immediately dictate your entire senses to send the message directly to your body for the actions. Of course, your brain, as a central control unit, will automatically stop you from drinking too much water, for you not to feel bloated. Your brain will give your senses exact information on what to do – no more, no less – enough to sustain your need. It is also same with of Fuel Injection where the Engine Control Unit (ECU) acts as the motorcycle’s brain.
