54.5 MPG is feasible now!
We know how to make internal combustion (IC) engines exceedingly efficient.
1. Burn a little fuel with lots of air...lean burn.
2. We also need low pollution today...NOX, HC and CO2, very low.
3. Also need optimum compression ratio (CR) in lightweight engine.
4. Burn a little fuel with lots of air...lean burn.
VCRC does it all!
Engine melds all fuel with little air in rich uniform mix. Fast burn.
Hot burn then mixes with remaining air for lean final oxidation.
Volume for first burn changes to keep CR ideal with torque: CR∼ revs.VCRC is 2 cycle spark engine; about 1/3 weight of standard engine.
