ABSTRACT

This study is focused on the performance evaluation of internal combustion automotives such as spark ignition and compression ignition engines. Specifically, the study examined the working principles of spark ignition and compression engines, the performance of spark and compression ignition engines and the type of fuel used by both engines. It was concluded that diesel engines consumes less fuel than spark engines, it is more reliable, noisier in operation and safer in terms of fire accident. Furthermore, the study revealed that spark ignition
engines produces more speed, less expensive and quieter in operation. However, the study recommended that the injector should be used with petrol in order to improve its speed and also, injectors should be properly mounted on its seating to avoid vibration and noise.
