My first actual test of lean burn at idle. I try outrageous Air to Fuel Ratios and insane timing. Spoiler: It only kinda works.
I describe how the Shell Opel P-1 got 376Mpg, and how I plan on getting at least 40Mpg on my RX-8. I also go into why rotary engines may be uniquely suited for lean burn.
Errata: The Opel was a 4 cylinder not a V-8.
