The best engine is not the most powerful, but it’s the most efficient.
Engineer Steve Jones has designed a ‘small’, turbocharged diesel engine to go toe-to-toe with some of the world’s most powerful engines.
He says it’s a much more efficient engine than the one he uses in his Mercedes-Benz C-Class and that’s why he wants it to be available to Australian consumers.
“I think it’s going to make a huge difference,” he said.
“It’s been the subject of a lot of research and the fact is it’s very close in efficiency to what I would use on the roads.”
Mr Jones is the founder and managing director of Jones Power Ltd.
The diesel engine is a turbocharged 4-cylinder with a compression ratio of 6.7:1.
It uses the same turbocharger as the one in the C-Series C-S500 sports car, which makes it much more powerful than any engine currently on the market.
The engine is made from two parts: a turbochargers and a compressor.
The turbochargators work by adding energy to the exhaust stream, which is then compressed to make the exhaust flow.
Mr Jones says the turbochargors also help reduce noise.
The engine uses a super-efficient super-critical design.
There are no turbochargments to start with.
Instead, a turbo is attached to the top of the combustion chamber, which has two valves to control the power produced.
The engine is then run through a turbine which turns the turbine blades into steam to make electricity.
Each turbo is about 300 litres in size, and each turbine generates about 150 kilowatts of power.
The turbocharglers on board the diesel engine generate about 1,500 kilowatt hours (kWh) of power per year.
“If you look at the engine, it’s super efficient,” Mr Jones said.
What you need to know about emissions: A turbochargor is a small, lightweight turbine with a combustion chamber that has two small valves, which allows it to control its power.
A compressor is a large compressor that powers a turbine.
Both the turbo and the compressor need to be at their full efficiency to be a viable alternative to conventional engines.
“The power to weight ratio is so low, it could not be a lot more efficient,” he explained.
Diesel engines are designed to be fuel efficient but it is still important to use them safely.
They need to have a fuel economy of more than 15 kilometres per hour.
When you drive an engine, there is an enormous amount of energy being sent to the wheels and tyres and that energy is converted into heat, which causes them to wear out.
To reduce emissions, Mr Jones recommends that drivers should not drive with the engine on, as this creates a “slip track” effect that can be harmful.
All cars, trucks and vans have a ‘slip’ effect when the engine is on, which can increase fuel consumption and make it harder for the driver to overtake safely.
But Mr Jones says that the diesel engines have some benefits.
“[The diesel] will be more efficient than anything I’ve ever built before.
Because of the turbo, the turbo will be a much smaller and lighter unit.
With the turbo on, I think you can drive it without any problem.”
The diesel engines are also less likely to damage the engine when driving on the road.
As well as being more efficient, Mr Lee says they also save money.
For example, diesel engines produce less waste.
If the fuel is being burned, it will be converted to electricity which can be stored in batteries and used in the car for a long time.
While the diesel is less fuel-efficient, it is also lighter than gasoline engines.
The biggest advantages of the diesel include being cheaper, easier to manufacture and more environmentally friendly.
Another significant advantage is that it is much easier to clean up the exhaust when the diesel gets into an accident.
Some diesel engines emit up to 20 times more carbon dioxide than petrol engines.
It also produces more waste, which means it has fewer fuel-burning systems, which will also help curb emissions.
Why is diesel the best choice?
The diesel is cleaner than petrol because it uses the energy generated from the combustion of the fuel.
This energy is captured as CO2 in the engine and then converted to heat.
In addition, diesel emits less emissions when the power is diverted to a fuel-cell, which helps it to run on electricity.
As a result, the diesel has a much lower carbon footprint than petrol.
Drivers in Australia should not expect to pay much more for a diesel engine than petrol, however, and it is recommended that they only purchase diesel if it has a range of up to about 100 kilometres.
