Could a gasoline engine outperform diesels? MUSIC might be the answer
According to MUSIC performance data, brake thermal efficiency was about 20 percent higher than a diesel engine. However, the comparison used data not from a real engine but from a "reputable" engine R&D company, according to MUSI Engines Ltd. So, there is no information about parasitic loads, the specific diesel technology (what about comparing an old indirect injection diesel with modern common-rail units?) or test conditions were provided. Nevertheless, taken with a pinch of salt, let's hope this leads to a promising solution.
