Re: CIS mixture adjustment keeps getting lost. Why?

CIS = K-Jetronic
CIS-E = KE-Jetronic
CIS is VW/Audi terminology, whereas Jetronic is Bosch-speak.
K comes from the German word "Kontinuous", and CIS stands for "Continuous
Injection System". The letter E is for electronic. The CIS-E/KE-Jet
systems use a electronically controlled differential pressure regulator
on the fuel metering unit for mixture control. The earlier CIS/K-Jet
systems are all mechanical (except for the early 80s K-lambda systems
which have a ECU-controlled frequency valve and OXS. The control-pressure
regulator (aka "warm-up regulator") is primarily found on CIS/K-Jet
cars, but some CIS-E/KE-Jet systems also have them.
