The Miller Cycle Gasoline Engine for a Light Duty Truck-Part 2: Investigation of Late-Closing Valve Method and On-Board Performances

Event: JSAE Autumn Conference
This paper is a sequential report on a Miller cycle gasoline engine which can be the alternative engine to an IDI diesel engine for a light duty commercial truck.
The previous paper reported that the 2.6 liter naturally aspirated Miller cycle gasoline engine equipped with the rotary valves has a same level of fuel consumption characteristic and the output performance as those of the conventional 3.0 liter IDI diesel engine while producing far less exhaust emissions.
This paper describes the experimental results of a newly constructed Miller cycle gasoline engine with late closing intake valve. On-board performances such as acceleration test and fuel mileage are demonstrated as well.
