What is a Petrol Engine
Petrol engines are one of the longest running and most prevalent in the consumer marketplace. They have been used for a long while and the basic four stroke engine design has not changed much in the past forty years. Even with today's modern vehicles with all the additional electronic sensors, valves and other bits they put on top of the engine, at the heart of it ill is still a basic four stroke engine because it has proved its worth over time. Currently there are four types of engines available on the market today. The Petrol engine, the diesel engine, the LPG engine (which is the adaptation of one of the above with the addition of a liquid petroleum gas.) and the new electric hybrid engines.
How petrol engine Works?
Petrol engine works by allowing both fuel and air to meet in a common place(the combustion chamber) this mixture is then compressed and ignited to create energy, this energy causes the crankshaft to spin and the process repeats itself over and over again while the engine runs. This energy is converted to propulsion by the use of a gearbox which takes the revolutions of the engine and uses that power to rotate the vehicles wheels.
Petrol is common as it is derived from fractional distillation of petroleum (crude oil), it is then mixed with a variety of additives to assist in cleaner combustion when used in vehicles. For many years it was thought we could produce an unlimited supply of Petrol as it was made from one of the earth's natural resources, but at present many manufacturers are looking for alternate fuels for their vehicles as the supply is not endless as once originally thought.
