The electronic engine management system ensures optimum engine performance at all times. It regulates all engine-related functions and assemblies. The results are optimum power output and torque with comparatively low fuel consumption and emissions.
Another function is the cylinder-specific knock control. Since engine cylinders never all work under exactly the same conditions, the knock control function monitors each one separately. The ignition point is shifted individually, as and when necessary, to protect the cylinders and pistons at high engine speeds and loads. For compliance with EU Standards, the on-board diagnostics detect any faults and defects that may occur in the exhaust and fuel systems and then notify the driver immediately. This also prevents increased pollutant emissions and unnecessary fuel consumption.
