Engine size and obesity levels


Recommended Posts

Lehman Brothers analyst Brian Johnson estimates that the share of turbocharged gasoline engines in the U.S market -- now just 3 percent -- could grow more than sixfold to near 20 percent by 2013.

Including diesel engines, just 6 percent of vehicles on U.S. roads are turbocharged, compared to nearly 50 percent in Europe, according to Honeywell.

That skew has reflected the American preference for bigger engines. The average engine size is about 3.4 liters in the United States, compared to 1.5 liters in Asia and 1.7 liters in Europe, according to industry statistics.

With the Australian s now the obesity leaders I am expecting their average engine size to be nearer 4 litres : ) You will appreciate the scientific nature of the linkage.
