The second day of the Nagoya Eco Clean Car Fair brought more exposure to the new technologies that the automotive industry is looking at to be the next generation of vehicles. And, as the Scuderi Group engineers have learned, the Scuderi Engine can give boosts in power and efficiency to even the alternative fuel-powered cars. One such vehicle on display this weekend in Nagoya is the natural gas-powered car. The base split cycle Scuderi Engine has the ability to operate a natural gas automobile at a higher compression ratio than a conventional engine being powered by natural gas. One of the limitations with conventional natural gas engines is that there is a tendency to prematurely combust more rapidly than a typical gasoline engine. Because the Scuderi Engine operates at higher pressures and fuel is injected very late in the combustion process, it doesn’t give the natural gas much time to combust. These findings have resulted in OEMs looking at the Scuderi Engine as not only a cleaner and more efficiency way to burn gasoline and diesel, it also gives many of the same benefits to other mobile applications using alternative fuels.
