This ensures an injection pressure up to 1,500 bar (in future up to 1,600 bar) is available at all times, even at low engine speeds. The high pressure produces a fine mist of fuel that burns better and cleaner in the combustion chamber. The driver notices lower fuel consumption and better engine performance." 1500 bar. Oh dear, puts boost pressure into persective doesn't it. -- The poster formerly known as Skodapilot. http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
