My GQ 93 has a VE type diesel pump. What year did GQ start to introduce in-line pump? What is the advantage using In-line pump over VE type ?

It is the other way around....

In line pumps are older technology, noisier, bigger.

VE pumps where introduced with GQ model in 1988 with the introduction of the 4.2 diesel engine.

VE pumps are smaller, more precise metering, quieter and lubrication and cooling is via the fuel itself.

It took Europe and Japan a long time to catch up with the British and see the advantages of the rotary type fuel pump. CAV I would estimate/guess had the rotary diesel fuel pump out 20 years before Bosch with their VE style pump. Some good things come out of the UK, just few and far between drinks.

It stands for "Verteiler", which is German for "distributor" ...........
"Verteiler" VE pump has one fuel metering plunger, and a mechanism (the "Verteiler"/distributor) to send the fuel to the right cylider. The inline pump has one plunger for each cylinder

Isn't it strange that the "Inline Injection" style of diesel engines are on the way back!

Take the ZD-30, it's not a VE, it's not Inline, but it has only one pump and 5 injectors!

I like the BMW direct injection unit.. A high-pressure injector, a high-pressure pump and a common-rail... Very nice technology.

Hi all, I feel sorry for the 3.0L GU Patrol owners who are starting to have their electronic diesel pumps fail. A $6000 replacement with no way to rebuild them, basically they are a throw away item. It is not 'dirty' fuel that is killing them, it appears to be fuel that has a lot of solvents in them, the same tricks that they do to petrol. This reduces its lubricating qualities and then failure occurs. Diesel is a poor lubricator on its own without adding to the problem. Has anyone come across this problem yet? cheers Michael.
