Talkin’ Shop: How Walbro 2.0 Is Driving Into Electronic Fuel Injection

 

As the long days of summer come to a close, Walbro Channel Marketing Director Bob McCue looks to cooler weather for what maintenance consumers should be aware of heading into fall on this month’s episode of Talkin’ Shop with Walbro. In this new episode, host Tyler Kern sat down with McCue to discuss what’s on tap for exciting new niche markets such as radio-controlled airplanes and drones, what’s new in production changes worldwide, and the state of fuel so far this year.

“For 69 years, Walbro has been a carburetor business. But Walbro is entering a phase shift with Walbro 2.0,” McCue said. “We’re excited the transformation of Walbro from mechanical to electronic fuel injection. Some really interesting production changes are happening.”

For example, Walbro was integral in one particularly successful production change with EZ Go Golf Carts. The Georgia-based company shifted from traditional carburetors to electronic fuel injector technology, which improves fuel economy, reduces engine service needs, and lowers emissions.

“This was a huge shift for EZ Go, going from full carburetion to full electronic fuel injection, where many companies will opt to do 50-50. They went 100 percent fuel injection and it’s been really successful,” McCue said.
