Cylinder Head

Why aren't injectors placed in the cylinder head in petrol engines?

They use injectors in the cylinder head in diesel engines , why not in petrol engines.

This is often referred to as direct injection.
It can be used to reduce emissions and provide an ultra lean burn engine for better efficiency.
The 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL was the first sports car to use direct fuel injection. Many WW ll aircraft used direct injection. Since then, several automobile manufacturers have introduced direct injected gasoline engines.
The down side seems to be cost - both the cost of research and development along with the required high pressure pump and computerized injection timing.
The three way catalytic converters, for instance, are a much more cost effective way to meet present emission standards.
However, given the significant advantages of direct injection and the technological gains in computerized engine controls, I suspect we will be seeing a lot more direct injected engines in the near future.
