In the September 2016 issue of Diesel Progress magazine, Jim Downey, PSR vice president-global data products, wrote: "(At this time), we expect total 2016 installations for imported and domestic engines to reach 41,141,590 units."
This covers engines powered by diesel, gasoline, liquified petroleum gas (LPG) and natural gas.
In 2017, that number is expected to be basically flat, dropping by 368,192 units, or 0.9%, to about 40.7 million units. PSR
