This research paper will cover fuel pumps for diesel applications. fuel pumps are a very important part of the diesel field. fuel pumps build pressure to inject the fuel into the cylinder. it feeds the injectors.you need the pressure for the injectors to atomize the fuel into the cylinder so the compression can ignite it
