The Internal Combustion Engine

A new, more powerful alternative to steam or gasoline!

Created by Rudolf Diesel of Fueled by Diesel

How does it work

The Internal combustion engine works by using highly compressed air in a cylinder that would rise in temperature causing the injected fuel (diesel) to combust and the expansion of gases would drive the pistons, powering your machines.

What makes it so much better?

The internal combustion is powered by using diesel which is a cheaper more efficient alternative to using gasoline leading to a better fuel economy.

Purchasing
