    Common rail injection is the latest big advance in deisel technology, & Volvo Penta seems to be the leader in bringing it to the marine market. I think less smokey exhaust is one of the major benefits. Just a more complete, efficient burn in the cylinders from what I understand.... but I don't know the technical details.

    A good article was written in PBB mag. Issue #86 Dec/Jan 2004.

    "In a common-rail engine, a precision gear-type pump supplies fuel at similarly high pressures (1,200-1,600 bar (17,400-23,200 psi)) to a tubular reservoir (the common rail) that in turn supplies the individual injectors. Unlike a coventional unit injector, which functions both as a ram-action, high-pressure fuel pump and a fuel-metering device, a common-rail injector is just an ultrafast, electronically controlled valve. The injectors themselves are actuated by tiny solenoids or, in a few cases piezoelectric devices. The common rail is configured to hold a volume of fuel large enough to minimize pressure dips and hydraulic-ram effects asthe injector valves open and close. Along with computerized controls, common-rail technology allows the fuelling process to be fine tuned to the specific operating conditions and instantaneous requirements of the engine with unprecedented precision. Benefits typically include superior fuel efficiency, lower emissions, and noticeably quieter operation."

    The article is about 6 pages with pictures and graphs. I don't think I can do it in here.

    for bob goallionzo

    There has been some reliability trobules with the 44's.And the cost of maintaining them will make you sick.The D6 is so new I have only seen 2 of them in the field.It is to new to tell how they will pan out.There was a injector line breakage problem with the D6 but that has all been fixed.The carolina classic is one good strong hull.And is also available with 315 H.P. 6LP-STE Yanmars wich are lower tech and cheaper to maintain and run fast in that hull.I bet the D6 would fly to though and it would definately not have all of that stinky cold smoke the yanmar has.And also This site is free to join and you can post you own questions that way with out having to stick it in here with this dudes 40 question.

    Spare Volvo TD

    Hi

    I've got one of these sitting in my backyard that I'm willing to part with Cheep. If anyones interested give me a call.

    It's located in Bellport Long Island New York and obviously you would have to come and get it.

    I ran great when I stored it, can't say now.
