Fuel Injection Repair? Not Just for Specialists…
Lee Jacobs, Global Product & Strategy Director at Hartridge, explains why UK workshops looking to invest in the next big thing should consider the Diesel & GDi injector repair/servicing sector.
The fuel system test & repair aftermarket is arguably undergoing the most change of all in the Automotive industry as a result of the diesel engine falling from grace.
Inevitably, this comes at a time when the number of CR (common rail) diesel vehicles outside of warranty is at its highest. Simultaneously, the GDi (petrol direct injection) market is experiencing unprecedented growth as a comparative newcomer to the fuel system market. The technology is now dominating petrol engine OE production at a time when the huge shift in registrations from diesel to petrol is in full swing.
It is our opinion that right now the market is ripe for newcomers to invest in both diesel and GDi injector testing and for Diesel specialists to seriously consider GDi as a natural and unavoidable consequence of the change that they cannot ignore for long.
Our argument is based on three key principals:
1: A vast & aging diesel-engine vehicle parc sits alongside a fast growing new technology (GDi) with known reliability issues. Over the next 5 years at least, the opportunity to provide a cost effective alternative to injector replacement is set to soar. An injector test-clean-service-retest proposition offers motorists great value and excellent profit returns for the workshop.
2: The latest Hartridge test equipment offers a fantastic low investment all makes entry point into the market. Until recently it was only possible for serious specialist diesel players to invest in its OE authorised equipment due to investment cost & complexity involved.
3: These same new machines enable a workshop with no specialist knowledge of fuel systems to comprehensively test CR Diesel or GDi injectors before repairing or servicing them. A combination of patented technology and highly advanced software provides the average garage with a ‘turnkey’ next-generation range of test equipment.
Our new test machines are very easy to use and are fully automatic. Our decades of know-how and understanding of testing injectors to OE standards is all captured within the hardware and embedded in the software technology.
This significantly de-skills a workshop’s market entry requirements, which makes it easier, cheaper and faster to start earning revenue though testing, servicing and repairing injectors.
For any workshop wanting to profit from this opportunity then choosing Hartridge test equipment means investment is now a fraction of what it used to be, and the resulting profit returns are possibly unrivalled.
