The Delphi F2e Ultra High Pressure Heavy Duty Diesel Common Rail System is one of a modular family of diesel fuel injection systems developed by Delphi engineers to address the future needs of heavy-duty truck engines. The injection systems provide high pressure performance (up to 3,000 bar) in conjunction with precise injection quantity control to help meet tomorrow's stringent emissions targets. The flexible package of F2e offers a compact, modular and integrated high pressure common rail system, while the high efficiency and low parasitic losses help maximize fuel efficiency, leading to a direct fuel saving benefit to the end user.
