Re: Software solves anything!

Carburetors had to go away when catalytic converters became mandatory, they can't control with sufficient precision the fuel-air mixture - and if it is too rich and doesn't burn completely, the converter can be damaged or go aflame because of its heat.

Lambda probes check the exhaust gas and send feedback to the injection system for any change required in mixture.

But they were already going away in high-end engines because electronic injection allowed for far better performance.
