In this work, a field programmable gate array (FPGA) implementation of an automobile fuel control system is presented. The engine control unit (ECU) described here uses a new technique to control fuel injection rate through indigenously developed MEMS accelerometer sensor. A simple car model is used to show efficacy of such system with a goal to optimize fuel efficiency and minimize toxic emissions. Hardware performances are provided with simulation diagrams which can be considered as feasibility study results towards a full-fledged solution.
