To meet future emission levels whilst maintaining good specific fuel consumption in spark ignition engines BL Technology Ltd. have engaged upon a programme work to investigate the lean burn potential of various combustion chambers. The work has involved extensive single cylinder testing and the development of specific chambers for multi-cylinder in-vehicle assessment. This paper reports on some of the findings of this research. The performance characteristics of certain chamber types are discussed and some factors affecting lean burn operation are identified.
