The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze Saves Fuel Through Special Oil Pump

A special oil pump contained in the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze’s engine helps in conserving fuel. The oil pump adopts a rather laid-back approach towards its work in delivering the exact amount of oil that is needed under all driving conditions, which needs the engine to be working less when compared to a conventional pump, thus, saving fuel.

Chevrolet Cruze

The Chevrolet Cruze’s Ecotec 1.4 liter turbocharged engine is enabled with the standard feature of variable displacement oil pump that decreases the overall displacement under high speed conditions as well as during the engine warm up. The oil volume displaced from the pump goes on to vary with the rpm by way of changing the displacement of the pump through sliding vanes and a central control chamber mechanism. A displacement pump that is fixed would be typically bypassing the surplus oil internally.

This Ecotec 1.4L turbo has become a standard on the Chevrolet Cruze’s Eco, LT as well as LTZ models while helping the Cruze Eco by means of a six-speed transmission that is achieved at a segment-leading 40 mpg fuel efficiency on the highway. The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze has on offer better fuel mileage, more interior room as well as more standard safety options in comparison with other cars in this segment.
