Audi’s TFSI technology
Audi’s most utilised engine is the turbo fuel stratified injection (TFSI). The turbo aspect is denoted by fuel being pressure-injected into the combustion chamber of the engine to create an instant charge.
The direct fuel injection mixed with turbo or supercharging technology in TFSI engines mean a high power ride and the use of up to 15% less petrol than a V6 engine.
So how does it work? Injecting fuel directly into the engine removes heat from the intake air, which creates a higher compression, improving efficiency and responsiveness and removing knock.
Recent TFSI success stories include the Audi A1, Audi A5 Sportback and Audi Q5 S tronic.
