    In the 80's there was a number of cars that had "Direct Injection". I had a Chevy with this system which was a hybrid between a carburetor and a fuel injector. It was basically one fuel injector spraying the fuel inside what looked liked a carburetor housing. The main difference vs a straight carburetor was that the fuel was under a lot of pressure as modern fuel injection vehicles.

    Physically possible, yes, although that would be completely pointless. Many 1980s Subarus used single point fuel injection, which was basically one fuel injector inside of a carburettor like device. Chevrolets throttle body injection was similar also I think.

    No way

    its really impossible

    its like a car operating in both fuel gasoline & diesel and thats is impossible

    fuel injectors and carburator can't be use in the same car because you have to change all the system.
