The VM engine has been in production since 1947 when Claudio Vancini and Ugo Martelli, two innovation Italian engineers produced the first air-cooled diesel engine with direct injection i.e. where fuel is injected into the combustion chamber producing some of the most efficient engines with significant ecomony of fuel than other engines of their time.

Throughout the early history of diesels, they were always fed by a mechanical pump with a small separate chamber for each cylinder, feeding separate fuel lines and individual injectors.] Most such pumps were in-line, though some were rotary.

Most modern diesel engines use common rail or unit injector direct injection systems.
