Downsizing and Downspeeding of Automotive Diesel Engines-Theory and Practice 820443

Tests on a chassis-dynamometer and computer simulations show that it is possible to save up to 25 % of fuel and at the same time to reduce the emissions of exhaust gases considerably by “Down-Sizing” and “Down-Speeding”.
