Cub Cadet’s EFI Engines: Cub Cadet’s new fuel-injected engine boasts serious strength, offering the kind of high-performance power you’d expect from Cub Cadet.
EFI uses up to 25% less fuel, which means fewer emissions and fewer fill-ups. Less time needs to be spent on maintenance as it has no carburettor and requires fewer oil changes.
To become Cub Cadet certified, engines are evaluated using a rigorous process to ensure they have been built to uphold our standards of strength, high performance and premium quality. Going to extremes, Cub Cadet engines are field tested in the most challenging environments to ensure dependable all-temperature starting.
EFI FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS EFI?
Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) is a high-pressure fuel management system. Just like on today’s cars, EFI uses an onboard computer, injector nozzle, and multiple sensors to reliably deliver exactly the right amount of fuel to get the most performance and efficiency out of your engine. Cub Cadet EFI engine is an advanced electronically controlled “Closed Loop” system that uses real time feedback to sense the usage conditions and instantly optimize combustion to give you smooth running, and exceptional starting you can count on… no matter what.
HOW DO EFI ENGINES WORK?
EFI, or any Fuel Injection system, utilizes a special high-pressure fuel delivery nozzle to inject an ultra-fine mist of fuel into the engine. An electronic control unit uses sensors around the engine to deliver the precise amount of fuel the engine needs, improving response, efficiency and starting. Cub EFI adjusts the fuel metering on-the-fly to compensate for variations in load, speed, fuels, temps, and pressures to always feed your engine the perfect charge that it needs for maximum performance at any task.
DO EFI ENGINES REQUIRE LESS MAINTENANCE?
Yes. EFI systems produce cleaner combustion resulting in a cleaner engine. Clean engines can go longer between regular oil changes and required major maintenances. We do still recommend a fuel stabilizer for long term storage to make sure the fuel in the tank stays fresh and you’ll be ready to mow with a push of button next spring.
ARE EFI ENGINES EASIER TO START?
A major benefit of EFI systems is the greatly improved cold and hot starting performance. Even after a long period of no use, during Winter for example, the EFI engine is much more likely to start first time.
ARE EFI ENGINES MORE RESISTANT TO FUEL SYSTEM CORROSION AND “ETHANOL DAMAGE” SO OFTEN SEEN TODAY?
The fuel system is ethanol resistant and compatible with ethanol fuel blends.
