Audi using supplementary port fuel injection to address particulates from gasoline direct injection

Green Car Congress

In part-load operation, the indirect injection supplements direct gasoline injection to improve fuel economy and to reduce the output of particulates from the engine. GDI technology provides fuel efficiency benefits from charge air cooling, more facile turbocharging, and the downsizing that these permit. Lean-burn GDI vehicles are generally higher particle emitters than GDIs running on stoichiometric fuel mixtures. Elements of the dual injection system.

Global Gas Prices | Hybrid Sales

Hybrid SUV Blog

sales of hybrid SUVs and other fuel efficient vehicles will prove interesting to watch this year, especially if fuel prices remain relatively low. Expert predictions about where oil and gas prices are headed vary widely. Some expect both to remain steady due to global economic conditions while others point to the return of $3/gallon gas (in the states) fueled mainly by an increase in foreign demand. Low gas prices encourage less fuel efficient vehicles.

Mercedes-Benz powering ahead with €3B strategic engine initiative; increasing electrification, 48V; diesel and gasoline; cylinder deactivation

Green Car Congress

For the mobility of the future, we are deliberately not committing ourselves to one solitary form of drive system, but to a coexistence of efficient and clean petrol engines, diesels, plug-in hybrids, battery and hydrogen drive systems. This allows fuel savings that were previously reserved for high-voltage hybrid technology. In addition to the advantages in terms of emissions, this results in fuel savings, especially on short journeys.
