Will the gasoline engine completely replace diesel?
IQPC spoke to James Turner, Chief Engineer at Lotus Engineering, in a podcast interview recently about the future of engine efficiency, and the challenges in finding the right technologies for highly downsized gasoline engines.
Most engines in the world operate on gasoline or diesel. With the sort of technologies we’re developing at the moment the peak efficiency that we should be able to hit with gasoline engines is at least 40%.
According to James, “…if we switch to alcohol blends, blended with gasoline in high concentration, it is reasonable to target 45% efficiency in a truly optimised alcohol burning engines.”
In terms of challenges the automotive industry is faced with in finding the right technology for highly downsized gasoline engines, he cited cost and complexity trade-off.
