Delphi has grown into one of the world’s biggest OEM diesel fuel injection suppliers so it comes as no surprise that Reef Fuel Injection Services (RFI) has become Gauteng’s first fully fledged Delphi agency.
Warren Hauser, RFI workshop manager at RFI, says the company’s strategy is to remain abreast of the latest technology and significant investments have been made both in machinery as well as upskilling its people.
“The new Mercedes and Volkswagens are all currently running with Delphi diesel fuel injection systems and we are now able to overhaul and test all Delphi diesel fuel pumps and injectors, from DP200 to the latest common rail,” he says.
“Achieving full Delphi agency status allows us rapid access to technical information, training and technical support as well as to specialised tools and diagnostic equipment. This makes RFI exclusive in this emerging market.”
“We can now offer the local market cost effective and accurate remanufacturing of fuel systems that won’t compromise the vehicle manufacturer’s warranty. We also offer motor dealerships state-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities that enhance their services by providing solutions to problematic vehicles and offering an economical alternative to component replacement.”
“This is the path our industry has embarked on for the future, across the full vehicle population from passenger to heavy commercial vehicles,” Hauser says. “In response to this trend, RFI has invested in common rail systems technology which we believe is the way forward for fuel injection. For example, the latest upgrade on the AVM-2pc is an automatic pressure controller that improves operator productivity by 20% as a result of a faster test procedure.”
RFI operates one of the best equipped fuel injection service, diagnostic and repair facilities in the country, using OEM equipment and genuine parts. Established in 1975, RFI is an acknowledged Caterpillar fuel system specialist and is an authorised service agent to all five leading diesel fuel injection systems – Bosch, Zexel, Delphi, Denso and Stanadyne and is ISO 9001 accredited.
