I've been running fuel injection since I bought my first EFI vehicle in 1978, a Type II VW Transporter. I'd heard a lot of horror stories about EFI, and of course the newer breakerless ignitions. But that VW fell apart around my ears. After two engines and three transmissions (160,000 miles) the one system on the VW that NEVER failed was the fuel injection. I was sold on it and swore I'd never buy a vehicle again with a carb... and never did... except the Jeeps.
When I got a chance to convert the CJ to EFI, I jumped at it. I spent the money and never looked back. It was bar-none the best buy I've made for the Jeep. It breathed reliability and new life into the Jeep. It's paid for itself many times over in fuel cost savings. It's been ultra-reliable.
Will it ever break? Sure, but I plan for that and carry spares for what I need to field fix and keep it running.
