Kind of a random question, but it hit me the other day that I am pretty sure I have never actually driven a car or truck that’s had a carburetor. I got my first driver’s license in 1996, and carburetors had become rare on new cars in the US by around 1990. The earliest model year car I’ve ever driven was a 1988 model. The 1988 Buick I drove in high school actually had badges on the fenders calling out the fact that it was fuel injected.
One wild card is the truck we had at my summer job as a groundskeeper which I drove occasionally. That was a 1988 Isuzu, and according to Wikipedia it was offered with a carbureted engine through 1993 (which Wikipedia says makes it the last vehicle available in the US with a carburetor). But I’m going to assume the vast majority of buyers opted to upgrade to the more powerful fuel injected engine and very few were actually sold with carburetors, and thus that truck was most likely fuel injected.
Every car I’ve driven after that was build after fuel injection had become standard on all cars.
