Advantages of petrol engine

A petrol engine is an internal combustion engine made for converting heat into mechanical energy which is generated by spark ignition of petrol. Generally, petrol and air are usually mixed after compression stroke. There are four strokes in two revolutions of the piston such as suction, compression, expansion and exhaust. Let us have a deep insight into the advantages provided by the petrol engine. 

Advantages of a petrol engine :

  • The petrol engine is cheaper than the diesel engine to purchase.
  • Less noise and vibration and service and maintenance cost are less too.
  • The engine works smooth its light and easy to drive.
  • Power output is good.
  • It can be easily retrofitted for alternative fuel like CNG and LPG.
  • Low emissions hence environment-friendly engine.
  • The petrol has a higher energy density than almost any other form of energy.
  • Despite its explosiveness and flammability, it’s relatively easy and safe to store and easily carry around in cars.
