Textron Specialized Vehicles’ new technology means more fuel economy and lower emissions.

Augusta, GA

Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc., a Textron Inc. company, has introduced closed-loop electronic fuel injection (EFI) technology on all E-Z-GO RXV and TXT golf car models and for Cushman’s Hauler, Refresher and Shuttle vehicles. Closed-loop EFI technology adjusts the fuel-to-air ratio in the engine to improve fuel economy, reduce engine service needs and lower emissions.

“The engine that the golf world has come to depend upon and trust in our fleet vehicles, will run more efficiently with the new technology,” said Michael R. Parkhurst, Vice President, Golf & Turf North America for Textron Specialized Vehicles, which designs and manufactures E-Z-GO and Cushman vehicles. “This new engine will offer our customers increased performance, lower costs of operation and a greener ecological footprint.”

Closed-loop EFI technology uses an oxygen sensor to read exhaust levels, which enables sensors in the new engine to adjust the fuel-to-air ratio, delivering better engine performance in all weather conditions. The new EFI technology increases the number of operating hours between service intervals, resulting in less maintenance. Exclusive sound-deadening techniques on the E-Z-GO TXT deliver a quieter driving experience for the operator and passenger. By installing an extended air intake hose, as well as sound-absorbing foam under the seat and rear-body access panels, engineers reduced engine noise and created a more pleasing engine pitch.

Closed-loop EFI is now available on all gas-powered E-Z-GO RXV and TXT vehicles, as well as Cushman Hauler, Refresher and Shuttle models. For more information, visit and
