 Charles Nelson Pogue: USPatent #1,759,354 ("Carburetor")
This invention relates to improvements in carburetors, and the general objects of the invention are to economically produce a dry properly proportioned combustible mixture from a liquid fuel, and generally to improve and simplify the means for doing same.
In carburetors as commonly used for supplying a combustible mixture of air and liquid fuel to internal combustion engines a relatively large amount of the atomized liquid fuel is not vaporized and enters the engine cylinder more or less in the form of microscopic droplets.
Before the carburetor is put into use the pressure-regulating valve 51 in the bypass pipe 58 will be adjusted so that the pressure best suited for conditions under which the engine is to operate will be maintained in the secondary heating chamber 21.

Land vehicles, boats, and light aircraft have a float carburetor, in which a float regulates the fuel level in a reservoir from which the fuel is sucked into the intake manifold at a restriction called a venturi.
This venturi metering system controls the flow of a continuous pumped spray into the intake manifold downstream from the carburetor.
When there is an individual spray for each cylinder and the injection is an intermittent, timed spurt, or is metered differently, the device is usually called a fuel injector, not a carburetor.
