Interesting!
For those of you, like me, that have no idea what "EFI" means, (I had to google it)
Electronic Fuel Injection.

I've heard of Electronic Fuel Injection, but I didn't understand what the EFI in "New EFI models" meant when I first read the post..so I had to google it...*after* the fact, its obvious! but it wasn't initially..

I'd be intrigued to see how they have engineered this.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

My Question is, Can you personally fix your car if the Fuel injection Fails? Probably Not...Why would a small engine be any different? Another Dealer-Only* Repair is What I see Here.

Yes. People do it all the time. I suspect the engines will be WAY easier to troubleshoot!

This is the future for all small engines guys. MTD released a few lawn tractor models with EFI for 2016 as well. My prediction: 5 years from now all dealer-only models will be EFI. Snowblowers and lawn tractors. Better buy a VOM.
