 Diesel Light Aircraft Engines

I saw a piece the other day in the discovery chanel about a diesel light aircraft engine they are developing in Europe. I was impressed with the performance. On something like a Long-EZ you would be near 200 mpg equivalent. Maybe we should dump the car.

I believe the Germans did the diesel thing back in the 30's but they were too heavy. Now, they may end up being too light. I dunno..but it's an interesting concept.

 Diesel Light Aircraft Engines

Some German bombers flew in the second world war with diesel engines. Their power to weight ratio was OK for transports but not for fighter applications. The idea of a piston diesel engine was put into the backshelf by the advent of the turbine and turboshaft engines.
With Av gas getting harder to find the light aviation diesel seems to be making a come back.

There is an interesting diesel engine being developed in England which is similar to the old Junkers design. Two horizontally opposed pistons in one cylinder. A 100 HP weighs only 200 lb. Anyone care to reengine their 4100? might be interesting at the tractor pulls.

New American supplier!!! It will be 2 years before certification, but they appear to be selling engines for military drones.

Peters, as interesting as it sounds, I think commercial acceptance is a looooong way off still.

On the other hand, if I wanted to build a flying hot rod I think I would much prefer the M-14P rotary, 360 super-charged horses from a 9 cylinder radial, and only 2" wider than the 'regular' Lycoming mill, and it only weighs 470 pounds.

That is a power to weight ratio of 0.766hp per pound, which is 50% more than the diesel makes.

Best of luck.

The Zoche radial diesels are better than that the ZO 02A is more like 1.10 Hp/lb.
Just a little hard to mount in your tractor or any other piece of equipment.

Peters, the Zoche is a good piece of engineering, no doubt, but I think if I'm going to bolt something in front of me that's supposed to keep my keester airborne and bring me back home I'll stick with the combat-proven design.

You can't buy the kind of field proving that engine has been through in all sorts of conditions.

Best of luck.
