    • Hi James. Thanks for your comment and observations on this article. We’ve now adjusted the animation on the infographic to reflect this point regarding the camshafts. Apologies for the error.

    • Hi Peter, thank you for your comment and feedback on our blog article. While this infographic only looks at the workings of a petrol engine, we may do further infographics that focus on diesel, electric and hybrid vehicles in the near future. Thanks again for your feedback.
