Due to economic and operational problems demonstrated with H//2-fueled, naturally-aspirated gasoline engines, and the inability of unmodified diesel engines to run successfully on H//2 it appears that a hybrid engine, called the CFI engine, will have to be developed if H//2 is to become an alternative automotive fuel of significance. The CFI-cycle is analyzed on the basis of the air-standard-cycle approximation, and its performance characteristics are predicted. Published data from an experimental, single-cylinder, laboratory version of a CFI engine support the prediction. 6100-A612
