OH! You said fuel injection was invented by BMW....My bad. I seem to have misread your ignorant comment and replaced with another just as ignorant comment in my wee lil brain due to alcohol consumption.


However I stand by my claim of douchebaggery, as fuel injection was NOT invented by BMW. It was invented in 1910 by an Iowa man and was only used on diesels until 1966 when along came electronic fuel injection.

Um, Chrysler had Bendix EFI on it's 1958 300D, and the Dodge D500, and the DeSoto Adventurer, all based on the 1955 AMC Electrojector, which was supposed to be in production cars in 1957, same year that Chevy introduced it's mechanical fuel injection, and two years after Mercedes used the first production automotive mechanical fuel injection system.

Oh, and the fuel injection that Robert Bosch perfected for diesel use in the '20s was initially worked out by a guy by the name of H.A Stuart in England, based on injection work that had been in progress since the late 1800s.

at least I'm not the only one that doesn't always know what they are talking about. this forum really needs people with more "technical knowledge"...eh zalight?

turns out I never actually said BMW invented it either...

so my question is, who is the bigger douchebag? the person who makes a false statement because they read it off a bmw website and didn't bother to check the information, or the person that comes back that I am a douchebag for not checking the information, and posts some other senseless garbage that is also incorrect?

next time i'll be sure to doublecheck everything I post, and you be sure to do the same. especially if you are claiming that you are more correct than myself.
