quote: not even smiles over miles. the more power you make with a big engine, means you can reduce displacement, thus reducing fuel requirements.
quote: the more compression you can get, more energy you can extract, i know on my engine(13bt), i could run something like +30lbs of boost on true e-85 fuels due to its massive benefits.
quote: because you'd only really need a 1.4-2 liter engine to make all the power you really need for highway cruising and passing and still get well over 30mpg highway
quote: No, he's correct.
quote: Energy is conserved, but power is the rate at which you're producing energy.
quote: It will burn fuel at the same rate as the lower compression engine, but it will be lighter.
quote: This is the reason why leaf blowers and lawn mowers typically use 2-stroke engines even though they're much less efficient than 4-stroke engines.
quote: For those applications, the power to mass ratio matters more than energy efficiency. A leafblower which is too heavy to lift is rather useless.
quote: The higher compression ratios are also slightly more efficient. It increases the temperature of combustion, as well as decreases the temperature of the exhaust when the gases are decompressed.
quote: This larger temperature differential leads to a higher efficiency.
quote: The longer mechanical stroke also helps efficiency (a 20:1 compression ratio has 19 units of energy-producing stroke vs 1 wasted unit, while a 10:1 compression ratio has 9 units of energy-producing stroke vs 1 wasted unit).
quote: Torque is not work.Torque does not need to involve movement.Horsepower is work.Work involves movement by definition.
quote: You can apply torque to a fastener and not move it. But, you haven't done any work if it doesn't move.
quote: It is correct. And there are actually 746. I don't know why you think they are mutually exclusive.
quote: Watts are also volt amps.
quote: Foot pounds are a unit of torque. It doesn't involve a component of movement. It is not a rating of power.
quote: The SI unit for torque is newton meter.The SI unit for work is the joule.You can see again that these are not the same.
quote: A watt is a joule/sec.
