This Super Efficient Engine Uses Gas AND Diesel.

When you head to the pump to fill up, sometimes, you have to be a little bit careful about what you’re doing. For example, if you’re driving a diesel powered truck, if gasoline would somehow find its way into your diesel tank, it could end up being quite the catastrophe and if you were to do the opposite, it could end up being equally as harmful to your engine and could probably end up resulting in a situation where you would have to spend a ton of money to remedy things. Luckily for people who own gasoline powered cars, the diesel nozzle is bigger than the gas one.
This time, however, we take a ride with the guys over at Engineering Explained through the concepts behind an engine that’s able to run on both. In addition, it’s not just something that was thrown together with some oddball concept at the foundation so that you could fill up with whatever you please but instead, it ends up being an incredibly efficient engine, accomplishing some pretty astounding thermal efficiency numbers which is one of the most important metrics when it comes to making power with combustion. It actually is up being pretty interesting, digging into the concepts and seeing what exactly allows both of these different fuel sources to work as one.
If you follow along with the video below, you’ll get the entire rundown from top to bottom that explains exactly how something like this might potentially be able to work. This is really unlike anything that we’ve really seen on the market up to this point in time and really provides an interesting combination of factors that you have to wonder if you’re going to ever see more widespread in the market. Do you think of this as something that automakers would potentially latch onto and use in a variety of their automobiles?
