    wasn't saying GM were the first, only that they did it before Triumph. i had a feeling Merc were the first but was unsure of the dates so thanks for that.

    Bosch fuel injection fitted to the Mercedes 300SL in 1955.


    Of course we are talking about petrol injection here, diesels had injection since the 20's.

    Hello. A columnist's job is to get people talking about his (or hers) column. And that is what is happening here. If this person had got it all right then you guys wouldn't be discusing it on here. Yeah. I agree the person who wrote this stuff probably doesn't know the difference between a 57 and a 56. But then it's not important to them. What is important is the colomn gets talked about. Just my thoughts.

    Yep, those msn lists are just so rubbish. I gave up looking at them as you just get wound up. Or wonder at their complete lack of knowledge,
