The design and development of a stratified charge engine incorporating a unique fuel injection system is described. The essential features of the combustion system and fuel systems, the engine characteristics, and the performance of a vehicle fitted with this engine are presented in detail. The engine, running on gasoline, is shown to have a thermal efficiency approaching that of some popular vehicular diesel engines, but without the smoke and noise of a diesel.
