The Gun engine - new car engine improves efficiency

How long until this idea disappears into the mw of the oil companies?

Good read.. interesting idea.

Q: How does the Gun-engine differ from standard automotive engines that are on the market? What makes your design better?

My gun-engine has many things in common with a traditional engine, (induction and exhaust evacuation valves, crankshaft, etc.) yet it is different since it explodes fuel; traditional engines cannot withstand the explosions.

The key point of difference is that the explosions of fuel vapor pre-mixed with air (homogeneous fuel) do not act on the primary piston that produces work, but rather on an additional piston that floats on a compressible air pocket.

This arrangement introduces certain delaying of pressure building over the primary piston that produces work. This provides the important opportunity to improve torque up to 70 to 90 times without fuel consumption increase.

Also, the arrangement changed torque vs. Speed, and power vs. speed characteristics. The torque is independent of speed, and power is in proportion to speed, which eliminates the need to use transmission or reduction gears.

In addition, this new arrangement eliminates the need for advancing the ignition, which is responsible for related parasitic torque in every traditional engine. Therefore the arrangement also allows development of transmission-free gadgetry such as cars and trucks.

Every traditional engine is infested with causes of inefficiency; therefore, it is bad by design.

I've eliminated most of the causes, so I believe my gun-engine is better by design. One of the most important causes of the inefficiency is the waste of heat by cooling through a radiator.

Another not less important cause of the inefficiency is the release of hot, incompletely-expanded exhaust. I've replaced the radiator -- the major cause of the inefficiency in every traditional engine -- with an internal cooling that preserves heat, which could be converted into extra work.

I've integrated a gun with this engine, therefore the expansion of exhaust is to, or even below, the atmospheric pressure.

Traditional engines work in a four stroke cycle, (some in a two stroke cycle) yet my gun-engine uses a four-stroke cycle during starting and to reach the destined speed, upon which it switches automatically to a twelve-stroke cycle that converts all the energy released from fuel into work.

The twelve-stroke cycle comprises:
- an induction stroke to supply fuel vapor with air into explosion chamber;
- a compression stroke to initiate explosions trough the compression heat;
- primary power stroke similar to that in traditional engines and;
- up to four compression and four extra power strokes that convert this energy that is wasted in traditional engines into extra work.

The conversion does quadruple the efficiency over that of traditional engines, and in combination with elimination of transmission, allows construction of a vehicle capable of exceeding 220 mpg in mileage.

Also here, getting some great reviews!

Canadian inventor, Kazimierz Holubowicz, has come up with an environmentally friendly and transmission-free engine based on the same mechanics as how a bullet is shot from a gun. Initial test results yielded 92 per cent efficiency
