ELECTRONIC OPTIMIZER CONTROL FOR I.C. ENGINE: MOST MPG FOR ANY MPH

The Optimizer is an electronic control system that keeps the engine in tune all the time by adjusting its setting continuously for best fuel economy several time each second. In contrast to the conventional programmed controls, the Optimizer works on the closed-loop principle in which the output influences the input. It has been applied to setting the spark timing and air-fuel ratio in otto engines and injection timing in diesel engines. /GMRL/
