No it doesn't.



I suggest you do that yourself.

The headline reads "Wauseon plant to open Monday for 110-mpg car engines"
followed by "WAUSEON - The man who drove his 20-year-old Mustang from Napoleon,
Ohio, to Las Vegas and back last year on 39 gallons of fuel will open his first
manufacturing facility Monday to allow others to get 110 miles per gallon."

If nothing else, this is blatant deception.

Please state where the article states 39 *MPG* ! AND don't encourage CROOKS.

The article contains 110MPG in the title
Here is another stretch.

A Decatur, Ind., specialty car company, Revenge Designs Inc., has contracted
with Mr. Pelmear to purchase 2,000 engines for use in a new vehicle it plans
to unveil at the end of this year at the Los Angeles International Auto
Show. The vehicle is to be called the Revenge Verde Super Car, which will
use Mr. Pelmear's 400-horsepower engine and its 500 foot-pounds of torque to
travel up to 200 mph and get 110 mpg - though admittedly not at the same
time

It said used 39 gallons of fuel in a run.

Assuming this is a converted Ford engine, is it?  So, if this wonder engine
that takes a 20mpg engine to over 5 times the efficiency, then it is in the
90% efficiency range.

A normal piston engine with con-rods has so much friction and pumping losses
this is impossible.  So, I assume it is not a converted Ford.  So, it has
pistons - a V8.  Then it must have a bottom end similar to this Revetec
engine.  http://www.revetec.com  This is more efficient than a crank and
con-rods.  It must also be some sort of two-stroke to eliminate the
excessive pumping losses of the 4-stroke cycle.

If this is not a scam, then putting this engine as the genny driver of a
Chevy Volt (only an electric motor drives the wheels), with brake re-gen,
supercapacitors and Lith-Ion batteries, then the Hybrid is here in a very
big way.  It can be used to recharge batteries and run the electric motor
direct.

Co-gen applications abound.  I am not holding my breath though. :)

What makes this engine so fuel efficient to normal off the shelf engines?

Who knows.  Maybe the newspaper editor was smoking crack.  Just funny to
see these kind of stories in a real newspaper rather than just some
asshole's web site
