Cylinder on Demand (COD) is an innovative technology that allows vehicles to run on fewer cylinders when they are not needed, thereby enhancing fuel efficiency and reducing emissions. With the increasing pressure on automakers to meet ever-tightening emissions regulations while still delivering high performance, COD has become increasingly popular. In this blog post, we’ll explore how COD works and its benefits.
How Does Cylinder on Demand Work?
COD is a system that uses sensors to monitor the vehicle’s performance and determine when fewer cylinders are needed. When the system detects that less power is required, it shuts off some of the cylinders, and the engine switches to a more efficient mode. For instance, in a V8 engine, the system might shut off four cylinders, turning the engine into a V4, resulting in significant fuel savings.
Benefits of Cylinder on Demand
- Improved Fuel Efficiency: The primary benefit of COD is fuel savings. By using fewer cylinders, the engine consumes less fuel, resulting in improved fuel efficiency. Studies have shown that vehicles with COD technology can achieve up to 20% better fuel economy than similar cars without the technology.
- Reduced Emissions: Because COD reduces the number of cylinders that the engine uses, it reduces the emissions generated by the engine. This is beneficial for the environment and helps automakers meet strict emissions regulations.
- Increased Performance: In some cases, COD can actually increase a vehicle’s performance. By shutting off unneeded cylinders, the remaining cylinders work harder, resulting in more power and acceleration.
Here’s how Inverness Tuning can help you get the most out of your vehicle’s COD system:
