Engineers find new ways to improve efficiency of gas engines: Engineering Explained

How a Reactivity Controlled Compression Ignition engine works Enlarge Photo As fast as electric cars are improving and expanding, there are some things that gas engines do better—many experts agree that gasoline engines will be around for several decades. Developing electric cars and refining gas engines aren't mutually exclusive. Vehicle electrification will continue to expand rapidly, and internal combustion engines may continue well into the future, in some diminished role. Assuming that's the case, it's a good thing that engineers are finding ways to improve the efficiency of internal combustion. For years, gas engines were stuck at around 30 percent thermal efficiency—a measure of how much work they could do on a gallon of fuel—about a third as efficient as an electric motor (setting aside losses from power plants and transmission lines.) Some of the best production e...
