Re: Question about feature with Transmission
At any constant RPM, the amount of fuel consumed by an internal combustion engine is proportional to the load on that engine.
An engine at min idle speed with no load must only deliver enough power to turn the flywheel and overcome friction of internal parts. Add a load to tha engine without increasing the fuel supply and the RPM's will go down. So, if you add a load and want to maintain RPMs, you have to increase the fuel supply.
If you find a way to idle an engine and maintain the speed on it regardless of how much load, PM me, we'll patent it and make a ton of $$$!
