The fuel system of a vehicle is made up of the fuel tank, pump, filter, and injectors. This system in a vehicle is responsible for delivering fuel to the engine as needed. The engine intake system is where the fuel is mixed with air, atomized, and vaporized. Once that has taken place, it can be compressed in the engine cylinder and ignited to produce energy. Although fuel systems vary from engine to engine, all systems are the same in that they must supply fuel to the combustion chamber and control the amount of fuel supplied in relation to the amount of air.

To perform at this level, diesel cars must have a fuel system with all of its components (fuel tank, fuel lines, fuel filters, fuel pumps, and fuel injectors) in proper working order. Understanding what these components do aids you in caring for them well.
The basic types of fuel injection systems are single-point fuel injection, multi-point fuel injection, sequential fuel injection, and direct injection.
Types of Fuel for Cars
A vehicle's fuel system comprises components that deliver fuel from the tank to the engine, including a fuel pump, fuel lines, a fuel-pressure regulator, fuel filter and fuel injectors. Fuel system components are built to last, so the fuel filter is the only part that's likely to require replacement on a schedule.
The function of the diesel fuel system is to inject a precise amount of atomized and pressurized fuel into each engine cylinder at the proper time. Combustion in a diesel engine occurs when this rush of fuel is mixed with hot compressed air. (No electrical spark is used in a gasoline engine.)
Common rail is a fuel injection system found in modern diesel engines. Common rail systems provide a level of flexibility which can be exploited for class leading emission control, power and fuel consumption.
