A chapter is devoted to the heavy oil engine, and considerable space is given to the lubrication, cooling and testing of petrol engines of all types. The text of the book is well written and adequately illustrated, and the subject-matter has been made interesting by a judicious and versatile selection of examples from modern British practice.
