I've read that my Stella automatic will be equipped with an electronic carb that employs a 24mm Dell'Orto throttle body. I'm told that this is different than fuel injection and I've not encountered this device before. Has anyone had experience with this type of carb? Is this a good thing or bad thing?

An electronic carburetor works very similarly to a regular carburetor except that the air fuel mixture can be adjusted automatically by a computer. The computer takes inputs from the throttle position sensor (something a non-electronic carb doesn't have) and the oxygen sensor(s) and makes adjustments to the air/fuel mixture by varying the voltage applied to a solonoid controlled fuel metering rod.

It all sounds complicated to me. Fuel injection seems easier.
