Cummins light truck diesel engine progress report Stang, John H ; Koeberlein, David E ; Ruth, Michael J

By: Stang, John HContributor(s): Koeberlein, David E | Ruth, Michael JPublication details: Warrendale, PA Society of Automotive Engineers, 2001; SAE technical paper 2001-01-2065, Description: 7 sSubject(s): Diesel engine | Delivery vehicle | Fuel consumption | Efficiency | USA | 91Online resources: Publikation/Publication Abstract: Cummins has studied requirements of the Light Truck Automotive market in the United States and believes that the proposed V-family of engines meets those needs. Design and development of the V-family engine system continues and has expanded. The engine system is a difficult one, since the combined requirements of a very fuel-efficient commercial diesel, and the performance and sociability requirements of a gasoline engine are needed. Results of testing show that the engine can meet requirements for fuel economy and emissions in the Tier 2 interim period from 2004 to 2008. Advanced results show that the full Tier 2 results for 2008 and beyond can be achieved on a laboratory basis.
