Experimental Research on Moped Engine Optimisation 810519

After some general considerations about energy utilization by different types of vehicles when used in urban areas, the possibility of improving moped performances by means of simple carburation and engine modifications is evaluated.Positive results are achieved in this research and the show that decidedly the moped is at the first place as regards energy economy in urban areas transport. This implies that, in a short time, it will be available a class of vehicles which, besides offering energy utilization coefficients little lower than those of public transport vehicles, will be characterized by the advantages of individual transport and, moreover, will contribute to reduce traffic congestion in urban areas.
