Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

The goal of this experiment was to determine which driving behaviors result in the highest fuel efficiency for a given trip. We collected data for speed (MPH), engine speed (RPM), engine power (Torque/LOD), and fuel consumption (MPG) using the ScanGauge II.

Comments

My research work fulfills the requirement for the Engineering Physics Senior Inquiry.

Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (BSFC) in Gasoline Powered Cars

The goal of this experiment was to determine which driving behaviors result in the highest fuel efficiency for a given trip. We collected data for speed (MPH), engine speed (RPM), engine power (Torque/LOD), and fuel consumption (MPG) using the ScanGauge II.
