With a little over 120 results it's 8:5 in favor of fuel injection. The splits are still mirrored with carburetors going 7:4 in favor of a single EI and the injection crowd going 4:7

I want to interview for a job as a Vegas bookie.

Default EFII

I agree with the respondents who have no option to vote for EFII systems.

To avoid all possible permutations from each vendor, the survey choices were generalized.

Based on the website - "EFII stands for electronic fuel injection and ignition", it aligns well with the other solutions providing "fuel injection" and "two electronic ignition".

In that case, my vote remains unchanged. That said, the difference between the mechanical injection systems and the ECU driven, high pressure electronic systems is at least as compelling as the difference between the former and a carb. But it is your poll and I dont know what your end result needs to look like.

Surprising to see how few are running magnetos. I thought it would be higher.

I think the poll is somewhat "self selective" since it's title focuses on combinations with electronic ignition.

Let's see, its a little hard to address the poll, since we have different configurations on different planes - you can sort it out Glen!

Two planes with dual P-Mags and fuel injection (one Bendix, one Airflow Performance)

One plane with Slicks and a carb

One plane with dual P-Mags and a Carb

And there there is the work in progress that will have an Aerovee and whatever ignition and induction system that goes with that....
