Which of the following statements about carbon dioxide is not true?

a. CO2, levels are highest when the air-fuel ratio is slightly leaner than stoichiometric.

b. The production of CO2, is directly related to the amount of fuel consumed; therefore, more fuel efficient engines produce less CO2.

c. To reduce CO2, levels in the exhaust, engineers are working hard to decrease fuel consumption to keep CO2 low.

d. The concern for CO2 emissions is one of the primary reasons for the delayed use of alternative fuels for automobiles.

To determine

The statement which is not true about the carbon dioxide.


The emission of carbon dioxide is a result of combustion of fuels and this emission depends upon the conditions which include a condition i.e. if the ratio of air-fuel is not correct and is leaner than the stoichiometric then it results in high emission of carbon dioxide. Thus, option (a) is correct.

The emission of carbon dioxide is related to combustion of fuel which means if the fuel is more consumed then there will be more carbon dioxide. So, there should be more fuel efficient engine which consumes less fuel to reduce carbon dioxide. Thus, the option(b) is correct...
