About this book


Uses up-to-date examples from real vehicles, both private and commercial, but shows that optimum efficiency can be achieved only by treating the vehicle as a system. The book will be of great interest not only to student and recently qualified engineers specialising in Automobile Engineering, but also to general readers who take a keen interest in the design and maintenance of their own vehicles.
