Low Emissions and Fuel Consumption
The OXE Diesel sets new standards for internal combustion engines within the global outboard engine industry. By using highly refined automotive based engine technology, the OXE Diesel is able to provide the marine industry with the leading and lowest fuel consumption levels, as well as the lowest emission levels on the market in an outboard combustion engine. The result is a minimized impact on the environment, significantly reducing not only CO2 but also CO, HC and NOx emissions.
As the OXE Diesel design raises the gearbox above the water line, it allows for a slimmer design under the waterline. This design is optimized for reducing drag, thus reducing the fuel consumption and emissions further, increasing range and enabling longer intervals between refueling.
Low Fuel Consumption
The OXE Diesel engine reduces fuel consumption by over 42% compared to a modern gasoline outboard of equivalent horse power, thus giving it a more than 60% increase in range.
Tony Kortens from Landing craft UK LTD states: "The OXE is faultless; the smoothness; power; and thrust of the engines are amazing. We can achieve speeds of 20 knots in a boat that weighs in excess of ten tonnes. The OXE’s excellent fuel economy shows with all three engines running to their maximum we have a fuel burn of 90 liters per hour which is phenomenal."
Reduced CO2 Emissions
The reduced fuel consumption is a key factor to why the OXE Diesel engine emits significantly lower CO2 than a gasoline outboard engine. One liter of diesel produces approximately 2.69kg CO2 and one liter of gasoline produces 2.36kg CO2 when ignited. Since the OXE Diesel consumes over 42% less fuel than comparable gasoline alternatives, the OXE Diesel reduces the CO2 emissions by over 35.5%.
Reduced CO Emissions
Just as with CO2, the reduced fuel consumption is a key factor to why the OXE Diesel engine emits significantly lower CO, when comparing the OXE Diesel to pleasure craft gasoline outboards. The much stricter directives that exist in the automotive industry, such as for example the EPA Tier III regulations, have directly benefitted the OXE Diesel engine since its power head is derived from the automotive industry. In accordance to EPA Tier III, one liter of diesel should only emit 8.36g while the non-regulated gasoline engines can emit up to 620g/l.
The result is a dramatic reduction of harmful CO by up to 99.7% compared with a non-regulated gasoline
Reduced HC+NOx Emissions
Lower fuel consumption means that the OXE Diesel engine emits significantly lower HC and NOx than gasoline outboard engines. One liter of diesel produces approximately 17.8g of HC+NOx when ignited, compared to 33.4g of HC+NOx for one liter of gasoline.
Since the OXE Diesel consumes up to 42% less fuel than comparable gasoline alternatives, the OXE Diesel reduces the HC+NOx emissions by up to 69.8%.
