The name itself shows that this engine is a cycle of six strokes where two strokes are the power strokes. This is additionally a reciprocating sort of engine with twofold progression of charge and it very well may be both internal and external ignition. It totally differ with the 2 stroke and 4 stroke engine because of its thermodynamic cycle. This type of engine consist of a “modified cylinder head” with “with two supplementary chambers” one is combustion chamber and the other one is an air heating chamber and both the chambers are totally independent from the cylinder. The design analysis of this type of engine is quite easy because of separated cylinder and combustion chamber. In this type of engine two valves are added with comparison of four stroke engine and both the valves are operated by an arrangement of piston. This engine is more efficient thermodynamically because the volume change in power stroke is more than the compression stroke and intake stroke. The leading advantage of this engine is “the reduction in fuel consumption by 40%”, there are two power stroke in the cycle of six strokes, and it is also less polluting type of engine. Six stroke engine's selection by the vehicle industry would tremendously affect the earth and world economy.
