"The continually injected fuel coming from the injection valves is "stored"
in front of the intake valves.  When the intake valve is opened, the air
drawn in by the engine carries the waiting "cloud" of fuel with it into the
cylinder.  An ignitable air-fuel mixture is formed during the induction
stroke due to the swirl effect."
