The emergence of the fuel efficient diesel is by far the biggest development within the last five years. Responding to the energy crunch which hit in 1973, engine makers began introducing power plants with special fuel economy treatments. Existing engines with the economy refinements were soon selling in volume. Take an existing engine, make a limited number small but important changes and you have a power plant with vastly different performance characteristics. The author gives a rundown on some additional diesel changes in the recent past. Most items have something to do with the development of fuel efficient diesels, although the connection is sometimes remote.
