We have been running fuel usage test with the 37 DFI on a Ferris 3100 and it is using the same amount of fuel as the FX1000V, which is labeled as their 35 hp carbureted engine. I've been dealing directly with Kawasaki on this higher than would be expected fuel usage with their fuel injected engine, and they honestly don't have a good answer. They keep talking about the tremendous power offered, and it takes fuel to produce power.

I've told them when people buy a fuel injected engine, they expect to get better fuel economy, as does the Kohler closed loop fuel injected engine. They just can't seem to give a good answer as to why their DFI is showing no improvement in fuel economy.
