The improvement in technology produces development in transportation and industrial such that our lives become convenient. However this improvement requires increment in the energy consumption. Shortage in the hydrocarbon fuel sources and the future stringent emission regulations have been a formidable challenge to the most prominent worldwide automotive industries. Climatic change and energy security have now become two major global concerns setting the biggest challenges facing the automotive industry worldwide. Unpredictable weather patterns, natural catastrophes and changes in the natural environment are being attributed to the global warming phenomena and this indirectly being pointed out to CO2 emission as the major cause. The need for a global response on the environment concerns has further elevate pressure on the automotive industry with two major challenges, namely; fuel saving and emission reduction. Vehicles are required to be efficient ensuring fuel saving and "green" enough in CO2 emission, two interconnecting parameters of vehicles which require extensive developmental endeavors. Moving on to Malaysia, Green Technology and The Climate Change Council (MTHPI) is adopting implementation of green technology on the reduction an atmospheric greenhouse linked to the global warming and climate change. According to the effects of greenhouse, the national automotive policy is centered on sixth thrust areas; environment is one of these focused areas. For that reason, it is important to understand the combustion phenomenon in a combustion chamber since improvement of the energy efficiency will produce undesirable gas emissions and environmental pollution.
