How does a carburetor venturi work?
The air passes through a narrowed neck inside the carburettor (called a venturi ), which speeds up its flow at that point. As air flows faster its pressure drops, so there is a slight vacuum inside the venturi. The fuel jet opens into the venturi, and the partial vacuum sucks fuel through the jet into the air stream.
