... A National Research Council committee is looking at technologies that could become available beyond the Phase II time frame, so a project was created to use the models developed in the NHTSA project to explore technology potential farther into the future. Four vehicle types were evaluated to cover the range of Class 2b through Class 8.

... RESULTS: The stoichiometric SI natural gas engines have by far the lowest thermal efficiency of all the engine options, but they still provide a 10 to 20 percent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the 2019 diesel baseline. This CO2 reduction needs to be treated carefully, because the greenhouse gas advantage from reduced CO2 can easily be overwhelmed by tailpipe methane emissions and any leakage of natural gas fuel.
