Henry Ford got a patent on the first carburetor in 1898. The carburetor controls the air to the fuel mixture in the engine. From choke to full open throttle, a carburetor is designed to operate under a number of different conditions and is a fairly complex component of the engine. You can find a carburetor in chainsaws to generators up to cars. Usually anything that runs gasoline needs a carburetor.
Carburetors were once a standard component in all car engines, but have been almost entirely phased out in recent decades by fuel-injection systems. Carburetors still remain popular for use in smaller machines and motorcycles, due to their simplicity and inexpensiveness. They are also frequently found in stock cars and propeller-driven aircraft.
