  • Junkyard For 2015

    1. 1. Junkyard Project By: Steven Neal James Neal Jesse Chipplis
    2. 2. Honda CRV • Picture by: redjar's photostream
    3. 3. Specifications for Honda CR-V • gets 22-27 miles per gallon. • it’s a lower rpm vehicle so it burns less gas • this would explain why the Honda CR-V gets such a good fuel economy rating. • 2WD models get better gas mileage because the vehicle doesn’t need to put out as much power the drive wheels.
    4. 4. Honda Accord • Picture by: Buster Benson's photostream
    5. 5. Specifications for Honda Accord • gets 20-25 miles per gallon. • it has a lower center of gravity, which increases aerodynamics. • 4WD versions are not available.
    6. 6. Chevy Equinox • Picture by: Elizabeth/Table4Fi ve's photostream
    7. 7. Specifications for Chevy Equinox • gets 19-20 miles per gallon. • AWD models get lower fuel economy because all wheels are turning all the time. • 2.4L is the only motor available in this model vehicle. • Hybrid versions have no advantages over gas models because of the size of the vehicle
    8. 8. Gas Vehicles • 98% of americans use regular gasoline in their vehicles. • the first self-powered road vehicle was powered by steam engines.
    9. 9. Hybrid Vehicles • Hybrid vehicles require battery packs • over time, batteries will lose power and will need to be replaced. • averages anywhere from $2,000- $2,500 to replace the batteries.
    10. 10. Hydrogen Vehicles • it’s an alternative fueled vehicle that uses hydrogen for it’s onboard fuel for motive power. • power plants convert the chemical energy of hydrogen to mechanical energy by either burning hydrogen in a internal combustion engine, or they make it react with oxygen in a fuel cell to power electric motors.
    11. 11. Disadvantages of Gas Vehicles • when ran they give off harmful emissions into the ozone. • there is no unlimited supply of oil, so we will one day run out. • fuel costs can differ from day-to-day.
    12. 12. Advantages of Gas Vehicles • there is less maintenance required. • better towing and hauling capabilities. • better vehicle life.
    13. 13. Hybrid vs. Gas • you can travel further distances with hybrid models vs. gas models. • When the batteries are engaged in the hybrid, there are less emissions given off. • hybrids are more eco- friendly.
    14. 14. Disadvantages of Hybrids. • battery packs are costly. • power is very limited.
    15. 15. Advantages of Hybrids. • fuel milage is increased from gas models. • when ran on batteries only, there are no harmful fumes given off.
    16. 16. Hydrogen vs. Gas • both hydrogen and gas vehicles are internally combustion engines. • when hydrogen is mixed with fuel it creates NOx. • hydrogen motors do not need a catalytic converter to pass inspection.
    17. 17. Disadvantages of Hydrogen • decreases 5 horsepower from overall horsepower from the engine. • to convert gas stations to hydrogen filling stations, the U.S. would have to create a whole knew infrastructure to support the switch from gasoline to hydrogen.
    18. 18. Advantages of Hydrogen • what is lost in horsepower is gained back in miles per gallon. • the only emissions that would be created would be water vapor.
    19. 19. Hydrogen vs. Hybrid • hydrogen doesn’t need to be plugged in overnight for it to be charged. • hybrids don’t require a large tank for liquid fuel to be used. • hydrogen vehicles in terms of range are like gasoline care were about 40 years ago.
