This project was carried out to determine whether the diesel engine was a possible power plant for light duty vehicles in America. The light duty vehicle considered was a 4/5 seat compact sedan with good acceleration capabilities and was considered for a primary emissions environment of HC - 0.41 g/mile, CO - 3.4 g/mile, NOx - 1.5 g/mile. A secondary environment of HC-0.41 g/mile, CO-3.4 g/mile, NOx-0.4 g/mile was also considered. A literature survey was carried out covering existing light duty diesel work and experience throughout the world. This indicated that the diesel engine was a viable power plant for light duty use.
