I was just randomly browsing around and came across this:

55585712 INJECTOR for 2014 Chevrolet Cruze

First off, holy wow are these expensive! But they do seem to last, so that's good. Anyway, the point of this post is in this verbiage below. How can it also fit a gas Cruze? Is this an error?

Since a pump's operation depends on the viscosity of the liquid, I can see how a properly designed fuel pump would work on both gas and diesel engines. Automotive fuel must, by nature, all have roughly the same viscosity.

I would say it is a website search engine error. There is no way the diesel injector and the gas injector are identical! The pressures and combustion chambers are totally different for gas vs diesel engines.

Low pressure pumps could be the same, but not the high pressure pumps and the viscosity of gas is the same across temperature while diesel fuel shows a viscosity increase with decreased temperature.

GMPartsNow and the rest of the discount parts sites all have this problem with most or all of the Diesel-specific parts. When I was searching for the various emissions sensors I have replaced, all of them were listed as also fitting the gas Cruze the same way this part was.

I figured it was probably a website error. Ugh! I hate that stuff because sometimes it's not at all obvious that it's an error.

Their Wholesalers provide the online catalog..but pricing is in a local database linked to it.

There are really only a couple large wholesalers so you see common catalogs at a LOT of places as a result.

Worldpac being the largest.

Setting them up and maintaining them is expensive and a LOT of work. Used to run an automotive forum as a hobby for someone that used it as a store front and and advertizement for their restoration business and we quickly decided we wouldn't have enough sales to justify the cost and work involved.

Definitely an error.

Most basically: the diesel is direct-injection and the 1.4L is not.
