https://www.eurocarnews.com - Volkswagen AG - The most effective means for reducing fuel consumption is so-called downsizing. By reducing displacement and thereby lowering frictional losses, a lower specific fuel consumption can be achieved, and this goes hand in hand with better efficiency. The innovative path to the future is the combination of supercharger and turbocharger. The supercharger compensates for typical drive-off weakness at low revs of purely turbocharged gasoline engines, while the turbocharger really puts out at higher revs. This combination of two types of chargers is unique among engines mass-produced worldwide.
