In order to purge the pollutant emissions from vehicular diesels, a Miller-cycle gasoline engine is newly developed to replace the diesel for a light-duty commercial truck. The experimental investigation demonstrates that the 2.6 liter naturally aspirated Miller-cycle gasoline engine has a similar fuel consumption characteristic to that of the conventional 3.0 liter IDI diesel engine while producing the same level of output performance as that of the diesel. In due course, the emissions of the Miller-cycle gasoline engine are far less than those of the IDI diesel. How to get even better characteristics of power output, fuel economy and emissions are discussed herewith.
