Mobil now have experience with 3 different PUs in the hybrid
era. I don't think anybody else has that experience.
Is that significant, the hybrid; they are ICE's as far as the
fuel is concerned. No?
Isn't the method of combustion rather more significant.
I see that you're replying to Bob again.
I wasn't aware of stopping as such.
I could have sworn that you said that you were going to put him into
your killfile for a few months (or similar).
Oh I'm sure I have put him in the Bozo bin now and again... usually the
"mark all post by this Bozo as read" especially after a tiresome spat
or I have found his manner particularly offensive. It's only for a
month at a time and not that recently as I recall.
I don't tend to use the killfile that often for regulars. I do have a
number of friends of Bakers set to "do not download" as they have no
business posting here except their spats with Baker.
Baker is the only regular from this group Bozo'd. I do that for the
sensibilities of regulars like Trev who the spats bother and for myself
as beyond the first couple of replies it really is a waste of time and
I lack the self-disciplie to let it go, especially the deceitfulness. I
must admit Baker is very good at trolling... but then if you see the
other groups he frequents he does put an awful lot of time and effort

These PUs aren't the same as traditional petrol ICEs which are
ignited by a spark in the main combustion chamber. They use
various types of pre-ignition and flame-front propagation
throughout the combustion chamber. The systems may be similar to
each other but they're not identical (AIUI). Therefore knowledge
of and experience with different types of main-charge ignition in
F1 ICEs would be invaluable IMO.
But I'm sure that you knew that already.
Well it is not an area I am very knowledgeable about but yes I was
intending to refer to HCCI etc... fuel efficiency being the driving
force (excuse the pun).
I thought you were. These trick ignition and direct injection systems
only came into use in the hybrid era - hence using the term 'hybrid
era' is perhaps a vaild delineator in this case.
I don't think I suggested it was wrong just that the hybrid technology
is not the significant factor... fuel efficiency is. Knowledge gained
before the hybrid era is still relevant (and after too) if it relates
to fuel efficiency and ignition/combustion methods.
