Lean Burn Engine Concepts-Emissions and Economy 750930

This paper discusses lean burn engine concepts for meeting emission standards features versus the use of an oxidizing catalytic converter for HC and CO control. Purely theoretical considerations indicate that thermal efficiency and therefore fuel economy should be improved by lean operation. Whether this system will be used is dependent on the Federally regulated auto emissions standards.
