What Does My Fuel System Do?
Simply put, the fuel system allows your car to go. It moves fuel from your fuel tank to the engine and converts it into the energy required to make the engine work. Each piece of the fuel system is critical to its function. If one deteriorates or fails completely, your engine will fail to operate properly and you could get stuck on the road. Fuel systems also function to help your car burn fuel efficiently giving your car better fuel economy.
