This text confronts the growing issue of fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission which have contributed to poor air quality and global warming. It focuses on the technical measures which can be taken to significantly enhance passenger car fuel economy, and gives estimates of likely improvements with the most promising options. In some cases this involves significant redesign of the vehicle, such as weight reduction, new transmissions, aerodynamic and engine management systems. In other cases, the changes are less drastic. Either way, many of the measures and technologies discussed are being developed and proven. This text takes a look at the car making industry, with some of the alternative engines discussed within the book, already finding their way to the production line.
