Abstract

This report discusses the preliminary research done and basic understanding of the chosen topic, which is Small Engine Performance Optimization for Power and Fuel Consumption Improvement of a Simple Vehicle. The objective ofthe project is to find the optimum engine performance of a single cylinder engine which suggests utilizing a minimum amount of petrol without compromising the performance of the engine. The challenge in this project is to find the most suitable way to install the EFI (electronic fuel injection) and to calibrate the EFI module to work efficiently at different conditions. The reason to change the standard carburetor with an EFI system is to obtain more fuel efficiency and power improvement because it is proven that better fuel and air supplying into the intake manifold will give the engine more power and fuel efficiency. An EFI system provides correct mixture of fuel and air compare to the carburetor with the help of electronic system thus it increased engine performance. Lab testing was performed for the designed EFI system to create the suitable match between the engine and the fuel injection system. The system was tested for its workability, performance and resistance to high performance condition. The result from the experiment shows an improvement of 3 to 4% of improvement of fuel consumption. Further detail can be read in this report.
