Putting the Squeeze on Gasoline

The dream of using compression-ignition idea — where the mixture is injected, compressed by the stroke of the piston and then itself under its own pressure — for engines has been elusive. now.

“It’s very exciting,” Rolf Reitz, professor of engineering and director of the Engine Centre at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The first has the potential to meet or the efficiency of diesel engines.

The RCCI engine starts the by injecting a charge of low-reactivity such as gasoline or ethanol and at the right time in the cycle, a smaller charge of high-reactivity such as diesel or gasoline with a product to boost its to that of diesel, a so-called The combination of the two fuels allows the to self-ignite as it does in a diesel

Reitz said the RCCI will either require two tanks …

Stuart Neill, research officer with the Research Council’s energy, and environment portfolio in Ottawa, the research into gasoline motors is challenging, but promising.

in microprocessor and sensor technology are it feasible to more precisely the combustion process to make happen,” Neill wrote in an interview. “However, it is definitely not a challenge to make this work over the entire of conditions that an engine is to operate.

“If you talk to the diesel engine they say the technology to control is as expensive as the engine itself,” he Which is part of the reason a VW Jetta starts at $14,990 and a Jetta starts at $22,490.

engines, such as those by Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and Porsche, use a urea injector system to urea — sold as AdBlue — the catalytic convertor, which converts nitrous oxide to and nitrogen.

Reitz said he’s consumer acceptance of either a diesel fuel tank or a containing the cetane-booster would be the as the acceptance of the AdBlue tanks on diesels. “Whether it’s or it’s diesel, it’s two tanks.”  READ MORE
