The automotive industry has been under continued pressure to improve fuel efficiency because of air pollution, global warming, and rising gasoline prices. One technology to address this need is electronic valve timing. It promises to achieve fuel savings of 10%-15% by reducing pumping losses, introducing cylinder deactivation, and enabling new combustion… CONTINUE READING
