Textbook Problem

Which of the following is the least likely to decrease fuel consumption of a hybrid vehicle?

a. Low-rolling resistance tires

b. Increased aerodynamic drag

c. Stop-start systems

d. Lighter and less powerful engines

To determine

The factor least likely to increase fuel consumption.

Explanation

The overall fuel efficiency of a hybrid is increased by a number of ways. Hybrid vehicles are able to produce same amount of energy by using lighter and less powerful engines as compared to gasoline. They use regenerative braking instead of normal brakes which helps them to save energy. Also, they have a start-stop system. When the vehicle is stopped during traffic, it shuts the engine temporarily off thus saving fuel...
