This article is incorrectly titled. No basis has been provided for the incorrect spelling/capitalization of the article - which is contrary to the maker's own labeling - and yet a deliberate block has been placed on creating or relocating under the correct title. It's like insisting an article be named "eLLeN deGeNeReS" and preventing anyone from correcting it, even if Ellen herself says it's wrong.

Scientific / Technical basis for the claims[edit]

What are the scientific and technical innovations that for the basis for Mazda's claims of improved performance? Is this actually a technical innovation, or simply a marketing pitch? Have independent measurements verified specific performance improvements? Thanks! --Lbeaumont (talk) 11:25, 22 August 2014 (UTC)


Beginner here so I apologize for the formatting. Increasing the compression increases the efficiency (per physics/thermodynamics manual) but more than that it's the fact that the engine functions as a variable compression engine in which the actual compression ratio is adapted to the demands. A light load works best with low compression and vice versa. So, the theory says IT SHOULD BE more efficient at both light and heavy loads. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.234.201.8 (talk) 02:48, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Split Article[edit]

I feel that this article should be split into separate articles; i.e. Mazda SKYACTIV-G engine, Mazda SKYACTIV-D engine, etc. Regards, VX1NG (talk) 17:27, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
