    Sounds like what I read in 1983.
    What engine is smother than an electric motor, meets all emission standards without electronic equipment, produces 2 horsepower per cubic inch of engine, can deliver 60 miles per gallon and weighs only 170 pounds?

    Hot Vapor Cycle Engine - HVCE
    The Adiabatic Engine developed by Henry “Smokey” Yunick in the late 1970s. Summary - He super heated gasoline and air mixture and introduced it into the combustion chamber WITHOUT DETONATION.
