In the cases where IVC occurs after bottom dead center (BDC-540[degrees]ATDC), the intake valve remains open during the beginning of the compression stroke allowing some of the trapped mass, which includes the port-injected fuel, to flow back out of the cylinders into the intake manifold. As such, the longer the intake valves remain open during the compression stroke, the more fuel is expelled from the cylinders into the intake manifold.
