The 760 million mile per gallon carburetor
As oil reaches price levels never before seen, I have been thinking about an article I wrote a bit more than four years ago. I called it the 760 Million Mile per Gallon Carburetor.
Though the article is a bit of a thought piece, the basic idea is that it is possible today, using technology that has been in use for more than 50 years, to build engines that can drive vehicles – not personal automobiles, but ships and perhaps locomotives – that can achieve the technical equivalent of a medium sized automobile that can travel 760 MILLION miles per gallon.
As you wonder where the gasoline and diesel fuel that enables today’s modern lifestyle will come from in the future, think about the amazing capabilities of uranium.
