25 KW hahahahahahaha! Rotary hahahahahaha!
love burning fossil fuels no matter how we acquire the oil hahaha!
This piece of machinery is a dud!
Wow. hahahahahahaha... taunt much?
Never mind that gasoline is getting so expensive, it's holding back the recovery from the recession.
The rotary engine was an early type of internal-combustion engine, usually designed with an odd number of cylinders per row in a radial configuration, in which the crankshaft remained stationary and the entire cylinder block rotated around it. Its main application was in aviation, although it also saw use in a few early motorcycles and cars.
This type of engine was widely used as an alternative to conventional in-line or V engines during World War I and the years immediately preceding that conflict, and has been described as "a very efficient solution to the problems of power output, weight, and reliability".
By the early 1920s, however, the inherent limitations of this type of engine had rendered it obsolete, with the power output increasingly going into overcoming the air-resistance of the spinning engine itself. Another factor in its demise was the fundamentally inefficient use of fuel and lubricating oil caused in part by the need for the fuel/air mixture to be aspirated through the hollow crankshaft and crankcase.
We all have opinions but your first post you came across as a dumb teenager on his P plates who thinks the worlds about him.
when we are invaded for a particular item by another country. But I doubt you'd care as I doubt you'll put your hand up to protect your country as all you care about is your own arse and well being.

Exxon in a joint venture with BP, Conoco Philips, Saudi Aramco, etc. will buy own this patent in the next few weeks.

More efficiency with fewer parts is fantastic for economy of resources but ultimately will be shot down because it means fewer jobs. Politicians will side with the status quo, for the wrong reasons, as always. Remember, fewer parts = fewer jobs.edit on 4/7/2011 by budaruskie because: (no reason given)
