BMW developing water injection! This is very good news for all supporters of the technology water injection in engines defended on econologie.com since 2003 (!!), such as on the subject about theinjection of steam in an engine!
BMW has indeed developed an integrated water intake air injection system of an engine turbocharged gasoline. This system reduces the fuel consumption of the engine 8% while increasing performance and reducing emissions. Ultimately, it is conceivable that such a system can be integrated with a range extender electric vehicle, similar to the GM Volt or Vtrux Via Motors.
This innovation, hoping it will spread over the entire BMW range, should nail the beaks of critics of injecting water into combustion engines (and there is not a bit!) ...
Then yes water injection in engines work and yes it is good and yes we know why... And no it was not operated for reasons ... mmmm ... dark?
Yet it was already known that injection of water, under certain conditions, is beneficial for more than a century !! See the work of the engineer Clerget (Among others)! Thank you # BMW and too bad for other manufacturers ... but they should do so quickly!
