I think the port injection is a nod to old school method to help with the problem of carbon building up on the back of the valves. The detergent in good gas helps keep that clean, IF there is gas squirted on it e.g. with port injection. If the gas is only in the combustion chamber with direct injection, not so much.
That's kept me from buying a direct injection gas engine so I'm happy for this small step backwards DI PI combo to make it better.
