Rotary Internal Combustion Diesel Engine

Post by Whyperion » 15 Sep 2015, 19:17

I must have been browsing something today and somehow got led to

http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/a8 ... -13817971/

At first I thought this is just the (rather unreliable) NSU engine, that also not having a cc ended up with a ridiculous amount of RFL to be paid.

But this USA based company appear to have resigned the method of operation, the combustion chambers and evidently feel that it can give better economy and usable power, both in static generator operations and mobile vehicle etc use. I am not certain how old the article is, but appears to be relatively recent. (ahh seen greyed out date OCT 17, 2012 @ 5:56 AM , I have not seen if there have been any changes since )
