Chrysler Files for Another Patent

We recently reported that Chrysler would be changing the denomination of their diesel engines, from ‘CRD’ to ‘EcoDiesel’, according to a recent patent filing application they registered. Apparently, though, they will be adding one more acronym to their own portfolio - HFE, which stands for High Fuel Efficiency.

This is probably similar to BMW’s Efficient Dynamics, Mercedes-Benz’ BlueTec - an array of efficiency-improving systems, which are fitted to a car to cut its fuel consumption (Stop - Start, low rolling resistance tires, drag reduction, as well as various other passive and active systems).

One of the group’s cars which could benefit from the aforementioned pieces of tech would be the recently-launched Dodge Dart, a car which is powered by Fiat’s already-efficient 1.4-liter turbocharged engine, which would be made even more economical if the car was to be fitted with fuel-saving tech - much more so than any of its rivals with larger naturally-aspirated engines.
