    Introducing HCCI Technology

    HCCI technology

    Recently, GM demonstrated a fuel-saving engine technology that I think has real potential to reduce our nation’s dependence on oil.

    It’s called HCCI, which is shorthand for Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition engine, and we think it will improve fuel economy, when combined with other advanced fuel savings technologies, by about 15 percent.

    With HCCI, a variety of advanced engine technologies combine to allow for lower temperature fuel burning, which is more complete and more efficient and cuts vehicle emissions. It also cuts the amount of heat energy that is lost with traditional combustion. HCCI creates the same level of power as a traditional engine system, but it uses less fuel to create that power.

    If you are a diesel fan, this probably sounds really familiar to you. Similar technology has long been used in diesel engines, but this is one of first times it has been brought to the gasoline engine. Now that we have the tools to make this technology real, we’re moving forward as quickly as we can.

    So we should look to expect this technology when the Gen V series of V8's come out, with Direct Injection? The General's got a handle on their engines, that's for sure!

    This is the kind of thing that could save GM's reputation: ahead of the curve technology. Playing we've-got-it-too will only prolong the misery.

    Beat Toy-odor to the punch with HCCI.

    So this is a low speed solution? Up to 55 mph is that just a tech limitation or what?

    HCCI should be in the volt engine. I mean that is a constant RPM you think that would be easiest first real world app.
