  • Turn off the engine while refueling

    Turn off the engine while refueling

    Reasons why you should always turn off the engine when refueling It is true that incidents related to static electricity are very unusual , although their statistical profusion shows that it is usually more common with cold, cool and dry weather conditions , and can even produce explosions at very dangerous refueling times. It is also of great importance that…

  • Mix oil and gasoline in 2-stroke engine

    Mix oil and gasoline in 2-stroke engine

    We tell you how to mix oil and gasoline in a 2-stroke engine properly to lubricate and function as it should properly. Two-stroke engines lack a crankcase and require oil to lubricate and function correctly. Getting the right mixture for this common type of propellant can sometimes present headaches for its owners. To clarify your…

  • How does an Atkinson cycle engine work?

    How does an Atkinson cycle engine work?

    We tell you everything you need to know about the most used engine in hybrid vehicles, the Atkinson cycle. It is an internal combustion engine with 4-stroke cycles (very similar to the Otto cycle) that is currently mainly used in hybrid vehicles given its high efficiency and reduced consumption due to its better use of fuel, although…

  • Gasoline Direct Versus Port Fuel Infusion

    Direct Fuel Injection vs. Port Fuel Injection: Delivering Power in Different Ways Direct fuel infusion and port fuel infusion are two unique strategies for conveying fuel to a gas-powered motor. While the two frameworks meet similar needs in providing fuel for ignition, they vary in how they achieve this assignment. Port Fuel Injection: The Established…
