Abstract

The most recent trend in the vehicle industry is to manufacture light-duty vehicles which are efficient for shortdistance
transportation. Therefore, many automotive industries are working to reduce the weight of vehicles which
helps to better handle vehicles and provide maximum efficiency. Nowadays, most of the vehicles run on fossil fuel
which is very harmful to the environment due to the high production of pollution as well as increasing cost because
of decreasing the sources of fossil fuels. Considering such issues, many researchers are working on alternative sources
which are easy to fabricate, maintain and eco-friendly. In this study, an air-driven engine is designed and fabricated.
A single-cylinder Honda engine is used for the experiment. From the results, it is found that the operating pressure
to run the engine ranges from 2-10 bar and the speed of the engine without load ranges from 600-800 Rpm. The
torque and power obtained at the different loads are 3.32 N.m and 217.24 W, respectively. The obtained power
output of the engine is enough to drive a small a lightweight vehicle such as a club car.
