As most of you are aware I converted my CFI EA to MPI about 2 weeks ago. This weekend was the big test as I had a 900km round trip to the coast and back. Well I ended saving about $25 fuel. Getting about 8-9l 100km on the highway sitting on 110km/hr. CFI was about 11-12l 100km. Around town was the greatest improvement with 11l per 100km compared with the CFI which was about 15l 100km. With these results the conversion will pay for itself within a year.

The CFI's have a big black tennis raquet type thing that sits over a throttle body (very similar to a carby) and the MPFI's have an airbox that sits in the engine bay behind the r/h headlight. The MPFI's also usually have "3.9i Multi-Point" badges on the front guards.
Being an 88 GL, I'd say it's fairly safe to assume it's CFI, but there were a few MPFI's so you could be lucky.
