50% Efficiency Boost From New Fuel Injection System

3waygeek Re:Cool, but... (379 comments)

Those issues can be addressed by particulate filters and urea injection, as the current diesels from VW/Audi, BMW and Mercedes demonstrate. I'm familiar with the VW/Audi technology, having just bought an A3 TDI -- their 2.0l TDI engine uses a particulate filter & is 50-state legal. Their larger engines use urea injection, as do the BMW/Mercedes -- the urea reacts with NOx to produce CO2 and NH3 -- the NH3 is subsequently catalytically reacted to produce N2 and H2O.

50% Efficiency Boost From New Fuel Injection System

3waygeek Re:NOx and emissions? (379 comments)

NOx can be handled the same way it is in the newer "clean diesel" engines -- either through particulate filters or selective catalytic reduction (SCR -- basically injecting urea into the exhaust stream to convert the NOx into CO2 and NH3, which is then converted catalytically to N2 and H2O).

Drug Vending Machines

3waygeek Instead of wasting their money on vending machines (97 comments)

Maybe the department could spring for some more coroners & staff. My brother lived in SB county until he passed away in May from an apparent heart attack. I say apparent because we still, 3 months later, don't have a death certificate, even though an autopsy was done and the body cremated within a few days of his death.
