This 5 stroke engine concept, which was invented by Gerhard Schmitz, has been developed by Ilmor into a working engine using a rapid prototype cast cylinder head, a machined from solid cylinder block and separate electrically powered oil and water pumps.

Ilmor 5 Stroke Engine – Better Mileage, Less Weight!

Ilmor’s¬†objective with the 5-stroke engine is to develop a gasoline engine with fuel consumption and emission levels comparable to that of current diesel engines, without the serious problem of particulate and NOx emissions that plague diesels.

The five-stroke concept uses two firing cylinders (High Pressure – HP) that work like on a classic 4-stroke cycle and a third further-expansion central cylinder (Low Pressure – LP).
