The following objectives were addressed in this experimental program: map the fuel consumption and emission performance of both a modern rotary engine and a conventional reciprocating engine of equivalent power; compare the fuel consumption and emission performance of the selected test engines in a simulated identical vehicle; determine the effects of the principal operating variables on both emissions and fuel consumption performance of the rotary engine; identify features of key fundamental processes which could cause differences in both emissions and fuel consumption performance with respect to the conventional engine.
