New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has signed a law making rolling coal illegal in the state. The bill was introduced less than a year ago after a pickup belched soot on a State Assemblyman's Nissan Leaf.

A newly released study finds that the emissions from post-2007, EPA-compliant diesel engines do not show risks of causing lung cancer in lab rats. The animals were exposed to the exhaust for 80 hours a week for up to 30 months. Previous studies have shown much more adverse effects from older diesels.

South Korean buyers hoping to stomp on the throttle to hear the thundering V8 of the Chevrolet C7 Corvette have reason to be a little depressed, it seems. The South Korean government has no interest in hearing the 'Vettes angry growl. We're afraid it's just too darn loud.

Diesel fumes are bad for people. But diesel power is good for a lot of heavy-duty work. So, for now, one answer to threading the needle of that little conundrum is to make diesel engines as clean as possible. To that end, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced $9 million worth of grant funds from the DERA National Funding Assistance Program. If the EPA's numbers are correct, that money could be worth something like $117 million in public health benefits.

There's way more to cars than just about how they drive – any auto enthusiast can tell you that. While the way a car feels is vital, the way it sounds plays a huge role in making it exciting as well. Some cars, like the V12 of a '60s Ferrari, are famous partially because of the fantastic noises that they make when the engine fires. It seems that Nitto Tires understands this concept, because it has put together a video with a wonderful sampling of the startup sounds of a diverse group of pe

The new Chevrolet Corvette has a trick exhaust system that muffles the exhaust note when the electronically controlled valve flaps inside it are closed, and let's the V8 roar when they're open. The system works its mysterious magic depending on the drive mode and the engine's rpm. Here, Patrick Herrmann, Technical Manager of Chevrolet Europe, attempts to show us what's actually going on in the Stingray's exhaust system to give it its dynamic sound.

Gasoline-powered, internal combustion engines are notoriously inefficient. Some estimates say as much as 70 percent of the fuel's energy is lost to friction and heat. An Automotive News story has engineers saying that only three percent is due to friction. To engineers, that's a huge pot of low-hanging, fuel-efficiency fruit.
