We present an end-to-end fuel supply system design method developed in BMSTU in accordance with requirements posed to a diesel engine, environmental requirements in particular. We developed our method using modern software packages that enable this work to be done with significant resource savings. The objects of our research were marine and locomotive diesel engines developed in Russia. Our investigation resulted in fully designed and patented common rail systems characterised by high efficiency, which implement a low-emission and energy-efficient diesel engine work cycle by means of fuel injection characteristic shaping
