I assume you mean the Wankel engine. en.wikipedia.org...
I think mazda has exclusive rights to it as it stands as no other car has them.
There are problems with them though, they aren't very fuel efficent and have problems with oil consumption because the "cylinder" that is created
with every rotation cannot (with current technology) form a leakproof seal from metal contraction/expansion during hot and cold operation.
I've done my fair share of research on alternative engines and the best (in my opinion) is the Brown's Gas HHO/Gas hybrid.
The reason I think this case is valid, is the creator shows proof of patents for 3 types of inventions using this idea and, most importantly shows in
detail exactly how you can create you're own from parts around the house and a hardware store.
Basicly it goes like this: 2 H2o molecules are broken down to there simplest forms H1+H1 - O2+O2+O2+O2 then combined in a controlled way to form
2H2+02 which is a flammable gas and as it has no carbon, the only emission is H2O in its purest form. This is how the Japanese have a car that only
runs on water but it needs a jumpstart to heat the gas to its critical point.
Sad that this has been suppressed so much. Basicly self sufficent once it gets going and makes clean drinking water and energy.
