Honda Civic SI Concept Information

When grilled further on (Fri, 15 Apr 2005 12:27:29 -0700),


Why is it that gasoline engines cannot (will not?) achieve higher compression like the diesel?
Thanks, Rob

diesel cycle because the fuel isn't introduced until the compression has heated the air charge to the ignition point.
That difference also accounts for the difference in theoretical limit of efficiency. The otto cycle adds heat at constant volume (less true at higher rpms than lower rpms, naturally), while the diesel cycle is deemed to add heat at constant pressure.

You are right--I made a mistake. The 2006 Civics will be for sale in November, 2005.
