English term or phrase: 2-stroke engine fuel-handling technology
This technologz was developed to reduce emissions.

German translation:Kraftstoffverbrennungstechnologie für Zweitaktmotoren
Explanation:
This is strictly an educated guess, based on personal knowledge and local experience.

Two-stroke engines, espec. older ones, do not burn as cleanly as four-stroke engines. A couple of years ago, the use of all older model jet skis (jet skis run on 2-stroke engines) here on Lake Tahoe was prohibited because of the large amount of pollutants they emit into the water, thus endangering the Lake's clarity even further. Jet ski and boat rental businesses all around the Lake had to chuck their inventories and buy new, cleaner-burning jet skis in order to be in compliance with the new standards and retain their operating permits. As you can imagine, this caused an extended public debate in the course of which we all learned a lot about 2-stroke engines and pollution. I imagine that the reference in your text falls into a similar category.
Hope this helps somewhat.
