Production 1971–1979
Combustion chamber
Cylinder block alloy Cast iron

The Mitsubishi Neptune or 4G4 engine is a series of iron-block OHV inline-four engines built by Mitsubishi Motors from 1971 to 1979, alongside the Orion, Saturn, Astron, and Sirius. This was to be Mitsubishi's last OHV engine. The inability to clear new passenger car emissions rules for 1978 meant that the Neptunes were replaced by the 4G1 Orion. The Neptune continued to be built until 1979 for commercial vehicles, which suffered less restrictive environmental regulations.
