1. A direct injection vehicle fuel system comprising:
a gas pressure vessel and associated gas pressurisation system to deliver natural gas at a desired pressure;
a liquid fuel storage vessel and associated reservoir pump to deliver liquid fuel at a desired pressure;
a mixing system configured to receive and mix the liquid fuel from the liquid fuel storage vessel and the natural gas from the gas pressure vessel to produce a homogeneous fluid fuel mixture;
a high pressure pump; and
a common rail system connected to the mixing system via the high pressure pump and connecting the mixing system to an engine that consumes the homogeneous fluid fuel mixture;
wherein the high pressure pump increases a pressure of the homogeneous fluid fuel mixture before the mixture is consumed by the engine.
