Interesting technology, but this looks like one of those advancements that benefits society in general more than an individual’s pocketbook. The bigger the engine the bigger the savings, but if you’re already driving a 4-cylinder engine getting, say - 30 mpg, is 32 mpg going to save you much money after the $350 invoice price turns into $1000 or more on your MSRP?
I think I’d rather see this technology available only on the bigger, gas-guzzling engines. Doesn’t seem like the added complication would be worth it on a 4-cylinder engine.
