Comparable numbers did likewise at Chrysler and American Motors but despite all the the piston- type engine still is king of the road. Glamor-type engines such as the rotary-powered Wankel and the Chrysler turbine grabbed a lot of attention from a motoring public sud- denly acutely conscious of how far a car can run on a gallon of gasoline. Steam engines and electric- powered vehicles came in for their share of attention as the industry stepped up a drive for a more economical power plant Ford and Chrysler spent million in that search in 1973 alone. Ford had workers assigned to its engine research and development section Other companies had similar work groups William Agnew of the engi- neering staff at General Mo- tors Technical Centre we have made technical reviews of over 300 alternate-power An example was the rash of suggestions from supporters of the steam engine as an au- tomotive power plant STEAM STUDIED George Chrysler's director of engineering re- said his firm has been evaluating steam-engine proj- ects for more than 25 years work has indicated that an automotive steam en- gine would be heavy as a up to twice as expensive as the internal- combustion he said. Of all the possible alterna- none attracted the at- tention the Wankel did. Three auto Mazda and have Wankel-powered units on highways. In 26 auto firms around the world thought so much of the Wankel concept they signed agreements per- mitting them to use the rotary-engine concept. Conservative GM was one of as it pledged mil- lion in 1970 for the right to manufacture and sell the Wankel rotary-combustion en- gine on a worldwide basis GM first announced it would introduce the Wankel under a Chevrolet Vega hood early in 1975 Most observers figured TV actor annoyed INGRAM Mrs. Laura E.

Playful Americans burn lots of gas NEW YORK Americans at play used 8.1 billion gallons of fuel last says a recent survey. Daily consumption in the United States is estimated at 17 million barrels of crude oil a day. or about 260 billion gallons of fuel a year The survey by' the National Motor Sports an arm of the auto-racing in- Police seek break-in clues City police are investigating a burglary at the Adams Ice Centre concession stand which took place sometime Thursday night or Friday. The thieves apparently hid in the building until it closed. An undetermined quantity of gum and candy and about worth of cigarettes were showed most of the 1972 leisure-time consumption was attributable to vacation and recreation travel. Some examples Americans burned 749 million gallons of gasoline go- ing to the rodeo fans used another 88 horse racing required 98 40 15 27 34 564 and 238 million. Pleasure flying consumed 835 million gallons of aviation and jet fuel in the Federal Aviation Administra- tion estimated. By far the biggest single gas-eater was vacation travel. The U S Travel Data Centre said people driving cars and trucks for non-business ac- tivities consumed 5.4 billion gallons of gasoline in travell- ma ift fi Ki 11 inn milps last vpar this would mean at 1975 model introduction time but on Dec. GM hedged its bet and said it would put the Wankel-Vega on sale in 1975 as soon as it was deemed ready for the road in terms of emission levels and fuel economy. BUGS DEVELOP GM officials emphasized they were not scratching the Wankel project but rather holding off on it until they eliminated some bugs. Edward GM presi- said the Wankel engine is 50 per cent smaller than a comparable piston 30 per cent lighter and has 40 per cent fewer moving parts. The Wankel basically oper- ates with a rotor which turns in a circular rather than the up-and-down motion in the standard piston engine. Henry Ford II said Ford will not use the Wankel Chrysler and AMC did some ex- perimenting with the Wankel program but not with the same enthusiasm GM showed. Chrysler and its John showed much more interest in the gas-tur- bine engine which has been a Chrysler pet project since the mid-1950s. Chrysler now is testing its seventh turbine under a million contract with the fed- eral government but even the biggest enthusiast concedes the turbine is years away from any general usage on highways. The turbine operates on tlw same principle as an airplane turbine engine and sounds much like one. While the Wankel and tur bine shared most of the head- the steam engine cairn in for some consideration too GM's Cole dismissed it this steam engine ap- pears to be the least promis- ing One of the problems is fuel economy for in a recent California bus steam power plants consumed about three times the fuel of a diesel power Ford reported it found some possibilities in the Stirling en- but GM did not share its enthusiasm. The Stirling engine uses pri- marily diesel fuel burned out- side the cylinder to heat hydrogen sealed within the cylinder and thus the motive power is developed GM said the system has some dis- advantages such as requiring a large radiator for cooling and having a heavy and bulky engine. Electric power also did not provoke much enthusiasm among the auto firms which have yet to solve the problem of how to develop batteries to operate a car at fairly rapid speeds over a distance of 125 miles or so. More interest was displayed by the auto industry in the stratified-charge engine which uses either a divided com- bustion chamber or one that creates a rich zone near the igniting spark plug Honda of Japan recently an- nounced a three-valve strati- lied-charge concept which was of sufficient interest to Ford that it sent some of its top engineering brass to Ja- pan to look it over. The report was that Honda's stratecharge looked good but still not good enough to be considered seriously at this time as a replacement for the standard piston en- gine Chewon CHEVRON STANDARD LTD. requires an AUDITOR A permanent position is available within the Finance Department of a major international oil company.
