      Nowadays there are more and more discussions on acquisition of energy from sources other than natural sources of energy. Many scientific research centers deal with the issue of energy recovery as well as use of energy from renewable sources. The communities associated with the automotive industry devote a lot of attention to the issue of improving the energy efficiency of vehicles. Since a combustion engine uses less than half of the energy produced during the combustion process, thus the issues of recovery of thermal energy and its conversion into electrical energy evoke increasing interest.
      The article presents the process of examination of the temperature of the exhaust system in a car engine operating in a laboratory environment. Measuring equipment was used to determine the temperatures.
        Analysis of distribution of temperatures in the exhaust system creates grounds for rational selection of the places where the thermal energy recuperation systems should be installed. At present the possibilities of recovery of thermal energy are still seriously restricted by the properties of the materials of which the elements of the thermal energy recovery systems are made. High propensity of these elements to thermal defects is a serious problem in practical application of these materials in thermal energy recovery systems. The results obtained in an experiment serve as the basis for determining the locations where thermoelectric generators should be installed while accounting for their thermal limitations.
