I believe the injection system is much better.
Has more power and better fuel economy.

Australia is just starting to get them.

CGI is a term that relates to direct fuel injection, which was applied to existing engine families. It's a fuel economy thing.

Most of the engines to which it was initially applied are being replaced--all with also direct fuel injection and most turbocharged.
