New Gasoline Engine Prototype Claims 3X Current Engine Efficiency

A cool new high-efficiency gasoline engine prototype has no radiator, no pistons, no valves, no transmission, and no fluids except for the fuel. At first glance it has a few similarities with the Wankel engine, but is more advanced. The engine is only suited for hybrid-electric vehicles. The efficiency they are claiming is over 3x what today's gasoline engines produce. The developers, a team at Michigan State University, hope to have this engine on the market in the next two to three years.

Since it doesn't need a transmission and only works in Hybrid electric vehicles, my money is on it only functioning in a small RPM range or low torque. Good for driving a generator but not actually powering a vehicle.

For part of the year, Norbert Mueller lives next to my parent's house in Michigan. Their initial application will be a stationary engine. They plan to apply the design to cars eventually.

Apparently the May 11, 2011 issue of Scientific American will have an article about this engine. The article title is Shock-Wave Auto Engine. Gas-turbine cars go five times farther than piston-powered hybrids.
