Programmed Fuel Injection, or PGMFI/PGM-FI, is the name given by Honda to a proprietary digital electronic fuel injection system for internal combustion engines with port injection. It is available since the early 1980s. This system has been implemented on motorcycles, automobiles, and outboard motors.


With its origins beginning with the CX500 and CX650 turbocharged motorcycles in 1982 and 1983, respectively, Honda's PGM-FI made its way into their automobiles in the early 1980s with the ER engine equipped City Turbo. The system gained popularity in the late 1980s in their Accord and Prelude models with A20A, A20A3 & A20A4 engines (Honda A engine), and its motorcycles later on. In 1998, Honda built its third motorcycle with fuel injection; the VFR800FI.


The PGM-FI system relies on a piezoelectric sensor to indirectly measure the air quantity, and interprets the data using performance maps. Fuel is injected intermittently into the inlet ports. The PGM-FI also has a trailing throttle fuel cutoff and a self-diagnosis system.[1]
