MAN showing progressive truck design study at IAA 2010

A drastic reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emission by diesel trucks is possible and can be implemented in a short space of time. This is conclusively demonstrated by a design study from MAN Nutzfahrzeuge being shown for the first time at the IAA 2010 in Hanover. The streamlined semitrailer tractor differs radically from today's typically cube-shaped trucks. The design of the MAN Concept S was rigorously adjusted in the wind tunnel in order to achieve extremely low wind resistance, corresponding to that of a modern passenger limousine. Thanks solely to its aerodynamic form, the MAN Concept S – with an appropriately modified trailer – uses up to 25 percent less fuel than a comparable, conventional 40-tonne semitrailer tractor. This is the equivalent of a reduction in CO2 emissions of 25 percent. With its Concept S, MAN makes a contribution to the current discussion on the statutory length restrictions applying to commercial vehicles in Europe. In order to realise the efficiency potential proven by the Concept S, tractors and trailers will have to become longer if they are going to provide the accustomed amount of interior space and loading volume. Changes to the road infrastructure for this purpose will not be necessary.

would like info on setting timing on 1925 American LaFrance-12. 6 cylinder in line engine. Has Magneto and distributor. Where should the advance lever be positioned for setting timing? How many degree of timing does the engine require 34, 36, 38 degrees Before Top Dead Center. Should the engine be started with any of the compression valves opened? Need this info for a Christmas parade in Titusville, Fl. Thanks for any help. Richard Burns, fire Chief's father in law.
