  • Hydraulic hybrids boost fuel economy
    wheels, and high-pressure accumulators recover and store normally wasted braking energy. High fuel prices have most every driver feeling pain at the pump. But imagine you're with a fleet of 91,000 delivery trucks. "Fuel conservation is critical to our business, " says company Vice President Frank
  • Keep cool, save money
    effect on diesel engine performance. A diesel engine's power-to-fuel economy ratio peaks within a relatively narrow range of temperatures. Also, the output of emissions to power is lowest within another narrow range of temperatures. These two ratios overlap within an even narrower range. Therefore
  • Internal Combustion Engines
    The most transportable and rugged sources of power are IC engines. Most industrial internal combustion (IC) engines in the low-power range, about 30 hp or less, are gasoline powered because diesel engines are too heavy and costly. For example, in a small engine-powered water pump, a gasoline engine
  • Accumulators Deliver New Payoffs
    size by 25%. In turn, the diesel engine driving the hydraulic system can be 25% smaller, and resulting fuel cost savings can be as high as 30 to 35%. The same techniques are being used in oil fields where hydraulic power units drive single-acting cylinders that pump oil from wells. The pump
  • The heck with spec
    switch to 100% ethanol for racing fuel, the same stuff blended with gasoline and sold at the pump. The move, designed to spur the U.S. ethanol industry, is the third major change in fuel. The first came in 1965 following a fiery crash the year before that killed two drivers and prompted racing
