Abstract

This research is mainly conducted to study the relationship between turbocharger, fuel economy and environmental issues The turbocharger itself is designed for the performance of the engine in term of its torque and acceleration.Turbocharger regulates the optimum level of air and gasoline into the intake manifold of the engine.But many of consumers do not know that turbocharger's main function is to increase fuel economy.Besides that, turbocharger is also playing an important role in reducing emissions made by both petrol and diesel engine. Somehow, consumers are hesitating to buy turbocharged vehicles because there are some automotive industries that selling vehicles that does not meet fuel economy and emissions standard as tested in the laboratory.Therefore, automotive industries should take step to replace these vehicles and must meet fuel economy and emission standard.This study will be able to investigate about the usage of turbocharger for fuel economy and emissions.The perception of consumer also will be obtained from study.The questionnaire will be given to users of petrol and diesel engine to study the relationship between turbocharger, fuel economy and environmental issues. The respondents are petrol and diesel engine vehicle users.
