Abstract : This invention relates to a fuel injection system wherein the fuel pressure can be varied or adjusted in accordance with different engine loading conditions. The system includes an accumulator and a source of high-pressure gas for raising the accumulator pressure in accordance with step increases in the fuel pressure. A pressure-operated piston valve is provided to communicate the accumulator with the gas pressure source or with an atmospheric vent, as necessary to raise or lower the accumulator pressure.
