    3 cylinder vs four cylinder which is best?

    A 3 cylinder engine is much more fuel-efficient compared to a 4 cylinder engine of the same size. This is because of two primary factors, reduced frictional losses and lighter weight. Since there is one cylinder less, the frictional losses caused by metal surfaces coming in contact within the engine block is lesser.

    But to deliver the same power the 3 cyl engine's cylinders shall be of higher size meaning more friction.
