When we look at the automotive industry as a whole since its inception one can notice two things:
-Engines have gotten exponentially more complicated and advanced with the integration of computer components
-These advancements have NOT translated into any sizable contributions to the efficiency of MPG
With our technological advancements the MPGs should have skyrocketed along with decreased emissions. But NO, it seems the auto industry is moving at a snails pace when it comes to going farther with less fuel. I honestly hope this engine does produce the 100+ miles per gallon, ill keep my fingers crossed.
IMO opinion engines have become much more efficient. The only problem is that cars keep getting heavier due to health and safety regulations, which in turn makes the engine less efficient...
