Gasoline-Fueled Diesel Truck Engine Cuts Fuel Use, Emissions

By Stephen Edelstein 1,563 views Feb 28, 2014 Reddit This! Share on Facebook Share on Twitter How do you make a diesel engine more efficient? One answer may surprise you: Run it on gasoline. That's what researchers at Sweden's Lund University are doing, and they believe this combination could cut both fuel use and emissions in heavy-duty trucks. Lund's experimental engine uses a different combustion process, called Partially Premixed Combustion (PPC), which researchers say could increase a large truck's fuel efficiency by 50 percent. DON'T MISS: Tesla's Lithium-Ion Battery Gigafactory: What You Need To Know This process uses two fuel injections for each combustion, the ratio of which can be changed to alter the behavior of the combustion. This in turn allows for control of ignition delay--the time between fuel injection and combustion--which ensures that fuel is burned mor...
