Anythoughts on SkyActive X or Freevalve?
« on: August 10, 2017, 07:28:02 AM »
Mazda just announced Skyactive X.  A compression based ignition of gasoline motors.  Promised reduced emissions, greater torque, greater power  (%15%).  A while back Koenigsegg announced Freevalve.  Promised reduced emissions, greater torque, greater power.  Also a 100 year motor? 

Seems the electric juggernaut may have to wait a bit?

The freevalve technology is some pretty cool stuff. I've been following it for quite a while now.  I've not followed the gasoline "diesel" stuff though.
"There can be no divided allegiance here.  Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
