Submission + - Diesel-Like Engine Could Boost Fuel Economy By Half-> 1

bonch writes: Autoparts manufacturer Delphi has developed a diesel-like ignition engine running on gasoline, providing a potential 50 percent efficiency improvement over existing gas-powered engines. Engineers have long sought to run diesel-like engines on gasoline for its higher efficiency and low emissions. Delphi's engine, using a technique called gasoline-direct-injection compression ignition, could rival the performance of hybrid automobiles at a cheaper cost.

    Put your time and effort on improving the real diesel engine and make it even more efficient
