Lightbulb Cold Combustion - Nick Otto and Rudy Diesel in Mechanical Matrimony

Cold Combustion - Nick Otto and Rudy Diesel in Mechanical Matrimony

The key benefit with cold combustion is higher efficiency: fifteen percent better mileage than the best gasoline engines without the more expensive fuel or the more complicated fuel injection and emissions controls necessary with diesels.The alleged experts claim that the engine Nicolaus Otto invented in 1876 is running out of gas. They're wrong. The beauty of Otto's internal-combustion gasoline engine was its unmatched developmental potential. Superior means of pumping the working fluids, lighting the fires, and twisting the crank keep arriving to sustain the Otto engine's vitality. The latest breakthrough holding fuel cells at bay is cold combustion.
