You may want to check your math. It's not 280 PSI.... it's 2,940 PSI !! A typical injector for gasoline is 45 to 65 psi.


And... as an FYI to this... a modern "Common Rail" diesel engine will run pressures around 1600 BAR in the rail. Yep... that's 23,000 PSI.

As I recall... the pressure in my VP Cummins is around 29,000 PSI. AND... I've hear of some systems going as high as 45,000 psi.
