Cars with two-stroke engines tend to be more powerful, but less fuel efficient, then cars with four-stroke engines.

Car Comparison Between Cars With Two-Stroke Engines and Cars With Four-Stroke Engines

The Difference Between Two-Stroke Engines and Four-Stroke Engines Engines are the heart of a vehicle and gives it power to travel. Engines come in a variety of shapes and sizes. In addition, cars tend to have different engine types than motorcycles. When discussing car engines, people often gauge the size of the engine by their displacement ? for example, 200cc, 400cc, etc. The higher the number, the better and more powerful the engine, but the downside is, a larger engine would naturally consume more fuel. Many people are confused about the differences between two-stroke engines and four-stroke engines. Active Mechanism A two-stroke engine will have one stroke in one direction. It will have one compression stroke, which is then followed by an internal combustion of the compressed fuel. On the other hand, a four-stroke engine would have to make two revolutions to make a power stroke, which takes longer than a two-stroke engine. Engine Power Since the two-stroke engine only needs one revolution per stroke, it has an advantage over the four-stroke engine. Its design is simple and effective. On the other hand, a four-stroke engine is less powerful compared to a two-stroke engine. Its design is more complicated, and has camshafts which push the spring loaded rods, etc. Fuel Consumption Due to its simple design, the two-stroke engine tends to consume a lot more fuel compared to the four-stroke engine because the engine has a primitive design and tends to waste a lot of fuel during the combustion process. On the other hand, a four-stroke engine has a more complicated mechanism and tends to be more fuel efficient since its engine is designed to minimize fuel wastage. Meeting Emission Standards Since two-stroke engines are poorly designed, most of them do not meet emission standards in many countries and are therefore not allowed to be used on public roads. On the other hand, four-stroke engines are quite fuel efficient and have low emissions so they can be driven on public roads. However, a direct injection two-stroke engine can meet emission standards in most countries since their engine design is more fuel efficient, plus they have all the benefits of a two stroke engine.
