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

Submitted by bonch
bonch (38532) 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."

    Same thing

    A "diesel-like" engine that runs on gasoline just isn't the same as a well-tuned diesel engine

    Cut the craps, guys

    Stop wasting energy on producing diesel-like engine

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