The engine has a reduced noise level and low toxicity of exhaust gases. To achieve noise standards, the engine’s crankshaft and camshaft are equipped with hydraulic dampers to minimize noise and vibration. Also, for even greater noise absorption at idle engine speeds, injection of a small amount of fuel is used before the injection of the main portion.
