How Oil Is Funneled to Your Cylinder

You’ve probably wondered how gas is pumped and channeled to your car’s engine every time you drop by the station to refill. You’ll understand the process better if you know the basics of how oil is delivered to the oil station in the first place. Here’s how it works.

Oil comes from crude oil, which is essentially full of materials that are not necessary for powering car engines. This is the reason why crude oil has to be processed in refineries to become the oil your cylinder ignites to produce power. However, despite the highly efficient refining process, many impurities that affect efficiency of oil may still be present in oil products delivered to oil stations.

To prevent impurities from getting into your car engine, fuel filters are installed between fuel lines and fuel injector. The fuel line is the pipe that draws oil from the tank to be channeled to your engine. The fuel injector is the device consisting of a tiny nozzle that sprays fuel into your car’s cylinder.

Over time, the impurities that flow with oil through the pipe build up. This will affect the efficiency of the delivery of fuel to car engines, which is why a fuel injector cleaning system is necessary. This system is used to ensure that the fuel injector is constantly in good shape for funneling fuel to engines. This also helps determine how much impurity a certain oil product contains and therefore, also realize the means to reduce or eliminate them.
