Fiat is so confident in their new MultiAir induction technology that they are saying the rest of the world's automakers will follow their lead in adopting the technology, and going even farther to say that all gasoline engines will have the technology in the future. Since Fiat is credited with developing past automotive technologies like the common rail diesel engine, which is now used by almost all automakers, maybe this isn't so far fetched. Fiat says tests show the new engine tech can boost power by 10 percent, increase low-end torque by 15 percent, and increase fuel economy. The MultiAir technology will first appear in the U.S. with the release of the Fiat 500 next year. Ailis Aaron Wolf 40mpg.org
