Default You Could Have a 110 MPG Vehicle Right Now

Not sure if people living in any of the countries very hilly areas would want one of these, yet depending on the total cost it might sell.

After all most things that save one money does cost money.

You Could Have a 110 MPG Vehicle Right Now


BY Jonathan Blum| 06/27/13 - 08:00 AM EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Doug Pelmear may have patented the final auto-industry solution -- a working, 400-horsepower, big-block V8 engine that really does get 110 miles per gallon.

But he's running on fumes.

"I have seen a lot of things. Was it ugly? Yeah," he told me over the phone last week. "But you learn to see what you have. And you don't cry about what you don't have."

This sober Pelmear is a faint echo of the sparkplug of an entrepreneur I met three years back. The then-successful Napoleon, Ohio, speedshop owner had combined a 19th century engine technology called the Stirling with rotating-fire cylinders and in-piston magnets to dynamically alter the horsepower and fuel consumption of traditional V-block motors.

"When you're chugging up the hill towing the boat, it's all firing along as a standard 40-horse engine getting eight miles to a gallon," he explained. But on the level highway, he says, the magnets in the cylinders nudge the heavy pistons along, keeping the engine driving with minimal fuel usage.

"The carbs shut off," he said. "Fuel consumption goes smack down to zero."
