Understanding Fuel Economy — “Gas” Mileage
Thermal efficiency, compression ratio, and fuel density are the primary factors that determine the fuel efficiency — a.k.a. fuel economy — of an engine. If mounted in a car, pick up, truck, boat, ship, a piece of heavy equipment, etc., even more, variables come into play with respect to the fuel
How Efficient are Engines: Compression Ratio & Thermal Efficiency
What Percent of the Thermal Energy Produced by Fossil Fuel Combustion Contributes to the Locomotion of a Vehicle? There is a conundrum with respect to the diesel-versus-gasoline-engine comparison. It is common knowledge in Europe, Asia, Australia, South and Central America — just about everywhere
What is Global Warming and What Does It Mean to Our Future?
What is the Definition of Global Warming; what does It Mean for Our Future; what We Can Do about It; and Is there Still Time? Global warming is one of those words that everyone knows, everyone understands the basic definition of, but very few people understand in any detail. Global warming is both a
