Rotary Engine Breakthrough? - Autoline Daily 997

A boom in the Brazilian market has one automotive manufacturer introducing seven new models. Has the U.S. auto industry fully recovered? A report from WardsAuto indicates it may have. Reading between the lines has us thinking we may see the first zinc-air battery soon. All that and more, plus an independent car tech believes he has solved the draw-backs of the rotary engine.

Rotary Engine Breakthrough?
The Wankel engine always held out a lot of promise, but never was able to fully deliver on those promises. It was never very fuel efficient, and the Exhaust temperatures were very high. But now an independent car tech thinks he has stumbled onto what held that engine back. Get more video everyday at http://autoline.tv





4 Reasons Why The Rotary Engine Is Dead
4 Reasons Why The Rotary Engine Is Dead. The Wankel engine was last seen in a production car in the Mazda RX-8, and currently there are no rotary engines in production. Mazda may bring it back in the RX Vision, however there are many disadvantages to the rotary engine which has kept it from being successful. Rotary engines have a low thermal efficiency as a result of a long combustion chamber and unburnt fuel making it to the Exhaust. They also have problems with rotor sealing as a result of uneven temperatures in the combustion chamber since combustion only occurs in one portion of the engine. Oil consumption is also a problem, as oil is injected to add lubrication and help keep the rotor sealed. Finally, emissions are poor and fuel economy is terrible, and ultimately this is the cause of it’s death.
