MIT Researchers find novel way to increase internal combustion engine efficiency

Now here's an article worth reading! Researchers at MIT have devised a way to wring more power and efficiency out of the standard, nearly hundred-year-old internal combustion engine. They have taken a small engine, added turbocharging and direct port ethanol fuel injection, and have found significant gains in power, fuel efficiency, and cost reductions.

Couple a smallish engine with these two enhancements and you get about 25 percent more power and efficiency.

Now, back to harping on the government...
