Every year, the modern car industry offers new models of vehicles that have gasoline or diesel engines that were actually designed long ago. However, there is always room for improvement. Engineers from different countries around the world have proven this many times by representing car engines completely different from those that people across the globe are used to seeing under the hood.

Opposed piston diesel was used in the 1950's and 60's in the UK by a company named "commer" they were nicknamed "the double knocker". Five stroke engine is also a UK development by ilmor engineering in Brixworth Northamptonshire.

The opposed piston 2-stroke diesel engine was the most popular large marine engine for decades. Extremely successful and only superseded by the current uniflow scavenge, super long 2-stroke, poppet valve engine. There was another version of the opposed piston engine, known as the double opposed, produced which used 3 pistons per cylinder. This engine used 2 pistons connected by tie rods top and bottom and run from an eccentric on the crankshaft. The third piston had a con-rod run through the bottom piston connected directly to the crankshaft. The third piston had a combustion chamber above and below itself, each fed by 3 horizontal injectors enabling 2 firing cycles per stroke. Theoretically it was the most efficient engine ever built but it was a nightmare to maintain and the idea, developed and manufactured by Harland & Wolff of Belfast, was dropped after ship reliability suffered.

Ported engines are almost impossible to smog. I don't see a vehicle future for the Achates, maybe a ship or generator motor. It's the same issue the rotary has. Oil to lube the pistons is scraped past and in to the exhaust ports. Unburned fuel? Uh, no. It's still expanding and instead of the 'heat' just going out the exhaust and wasted, it's put into a 2nd cylinder to capture the rest of the expansion. Nothing new. There's been double/triple expansion steam engines for 'centuries' for the same reason.

The Bugatti Veyron is a W16 Engine that produces 1,184 Hp in the Super Sport. Not 3,000. It is also not the most reliable, nor the most powerful production internal combustion car. -Koenigsegg Regera - 1,479 bhp -Bugatti Chiron - 1,479 bhp and maybe a few others. There is also Electric EV Cars that produce 1500 Hp and one that is in its production phase that will supposedly produce 1,999 bhp The 1962/63 Oldsmobile Jetfire Had 10.25:1 Compression, not 10:1. 5-Stroke...Extended Expansion, lol. Still a 4-Stroke. -Intake -Combustion -Power Stroke -Exhaust A Stroke is measured by one cylinder, not combining two cylinders to make some extended expansion stroke. That middle cylinder is still using Intake, Combustion, Power Stroke, Exhaust.

5:20 It is a 3 cylinder engine with one cylinder in the middle and two outer cylinders and one cylinder in the middle? How can you read this stuff off without noticing how dumb it sounds?
John Loosemore
John Loosemore 4 months ago
The center cylinder, viewed by itself, acts something like a very crude steam engine. The catch is, as the center piston is being pushed downward by the pressurized gas charge, one of the outer pistons is always fighting its way upward against that exact same pressure. So if the outer piston had 75% the surface area as the middle one, you could say right off that this engine is 75% perpetual motion machine -- the same effect as if you had a generator that ran a motor that in turn cranked the same generator that ran the same motor, etc. Only the 25% difference would be available to produce any additional power, and that would be bogged down trying to overcome 100% of the additional friction of the extra piston, extra connecting rod, and other sources of inefficiency in the gas flow or whatever.
Strixx 4 months ago
It is also not a 5-Stroke, still a 4-Stroke. That center cylinder is still using Intake, Combustion, Power Stroke, Exhaust. Who came up with this "5-Stroke" thing saying extended expansion is a stroke lol.

And you say the engine design can "save 10% more fuel." It saves 10% more than WHAT saves, relative to what? You are saying some other engine saves SOME fuel, but this one saves 10% more than that. So there are 3 different engines involved, the one that saves zero fuel, the one that saves SOME fuel, and this one that saves 10% "more" fuel. At least say "uses 10% less fuel than a conventional engine" if that is what you mean. Saying "10% less fuel" instead of "10% more savings" makes a lot more sense.
John Loosemore
John Loosemore 5 months ago
Also the middle cylinder is not taking in any additional air or any additional fuel, nor does it have a compression stroke... I don't think any additional combustion is taking place there. If the fuel/air mixture was going to burn, it would already have burned in the outer cylinders. You seem to be confusing "extracting additional energy" with "additional combustion." The additional energy extracted is coming from the already-burned exhaust gases of the other two cylinders in the same way that a turbocharger might be powered by exhaust gases. They don't de-tune an engine for incomplete combustion when they add a turbocharger, do they?

Also the opposed piston engine idea has been in use before by a company known as Fairbanks Morse. Mainly used in Marine, Generating and Locomotive applications. They were reliable and efficient because they have less moving parts. All you need are pistons and rods, crankshafts and gears to connect the power output of the crankshaft. They also need a method of forced induction so either the use of a turbo or supercharger is used Though Ford used this design on a much smaller scale compared to Fairbanks Morse

Sorry but a Bugatti Veyron ain't shit anymore ! The new king is the Koenigsegg Agera RS ! That's right, You heard me KOENIGSEGG !!! A Koenigsegg Agera RS driven by factory driver, Niklas Lilja, achieved five new world records for a production vehicle on November 4th, 2017, in Pahrump, Nevada: THE HIGHEST TOP SPEED FOR A PRODUCTION VEHICLE Calculated using an average of two runs, one in either direction. The record speed achieved is 447.19 km/h (277.87 mph) 0-400-0 km/h The 0-400-0 km/h run was completed in 33.29 seconds, beating the previous time of 36.44 seconds set by the same car in Denmark in October 2017. FLYING KILOMETER ON A PUBLIC ROAD The highest average speed for a flying kilometer on a public road, calculated after running the car in two directions - 445.63 km/h (276.9 mph) FLYING MILE ON A PUBLIC ROAD The highest average speed for a flying mile on a public road, calculated after running the car in two directions - 444.76 km/h (276.36 mph) HIGHEST SPEED ACHIEVED ON A PUBLIC ROAD Single direction recorded. Measured at 457.94 km/h (284.55 mph)

A correction about the Turbo Olds engine. The engine did not detonate, and destroy itself if it was run with the Turbo Rocket Fluid tank empty. If it was out of fluid, there was a mechanical valve in the tank that was plumbed into the Turbo, that would prevent the Turbo from building boost if it was empty. So, if the fluid ran out while you were driving, the worst that would happen is that you would lose all your boost power, and be driving it naturally aspirated, no engine pinging or knocking. The Oldsmobile engineers were no dummies. The engine was scrapped after a few years, not because of running out of Turbo Rocket Fluid, but because of the lack of modern electronics at the time, and the engine had many overly complicated, mechanical systems, that were hard to keep in adjustment and working correctly. Many people ended up having the dealerships remove the Turbo system, and just drove them naturally aspirated.

The revival of the counter piston diesel. LOL! The U.S. position before WW II was different from other nations in that everything was a long ways away, so for subs to be useful using their originally intended tactics, they had to be able to keep pace with surface fleets. This meant it needed to be larger with more room per person for the crew for supplies and sanity reasons (which can only be understood by visiting a German Type VIIC first) Coming up with a powerful, efficient, good power to weight ratio, engine for their submarines proved elusive. After a lot of effort, they discovered they already had one. It was being used in trains. They used the entire powertrain. As a consequence, their subs were faster, far more efficient, and more reliable. There were no gears to be shifted when going from diesel to electric because they were always electric. The spit of power between powering the sub and charging was very simple and it had the ability to sprint. The design turned out to be a godsend because after Pearl Harbor, they needed to be able to do war patrols of vast distances with no Milk Cows to support them. They comprised less than 2 percent of the U.S. Navy, but sank over 30 percent of Japan's navy, including eight aircraft carriers. More important, they strangled the Japanese economy by sinking 60 percent of the Japanese merchant marine, and and actually a lot more when you consider their intelligence gathering and clandestine operations that enabled other elements to set up traps. The opposed piston diesel definitely earned its keep. The Fairbanks-Morse were not the first opposed piston nor did the U.S. invent them. It was the first solid, practical implementation. Today, the Napier Delta is a 3-way V opposed piston engine, but I don't know of any small opposed engines that are successful...yet. My thoughts are that while you eliminate the cylinder head, you pick up a second crankshaft and the exhaust has to travel through the block like the old Flat Head engines. Now instead of the exhaust traveling through the head, it travels through the block. The problem the Flat Head engines had was blocks cracking. Not having valves helps, as where most cracks started was the valve seats, but the block needs to be cooled around the exhaust, just as a cylinder head does, and it has further to go before it reaches an area where heat doesn't matter, which increases cooling system demand. (Or at least it did on the old Flat Heads). Next, there is the issue of double crankshafts geared together. I've heard a WW II engine run, and the noise is horrendous. Moreover those are explosions with crankshafts twisting to some degree like a rubber band and those harmonics being sent to a gear train. This is not like a turbine engine with steady torque running through inline planetary gear sets. My experience with geared airplane piston engines is they incur a lot more maintenance costs per flight hour. There is no simple way to do variable valve timing to optimize cylinder pressure at a certain RPM thereby limiting the power to weight, but could be mitigated to some degree with a turbocharger. I'd love to ask questions and hear from those working on the project. I wouldn't have guessed that the most efficient large ship engines would be diesel, or that they would be two-stroke, like these engines, nor that they could replace cylinders, rods, and pistons while the engine is running either. LOL!

I have made a prototype engine it has 2 Cylinder 4 pistons 4 cams and one crank it makes almost 690 hp and almost 553 ft.lbs of tourq for a 4 piston design it also has almost no vibration it is a flat design like a H 4 from Subaru but is slightly bigger then a rotery design only ways 397lbs I have a working model and I am yousing honda forged pistons from a F series from the s2000 I made my own rods, cam, crank, and block I am also yousing a closed deck design for more power without having catastrophic failure becous I am running a extremely high compression I can change the compression with spasers on the head and the block so I can run cheaper gas but I designed it to run on diesel as well so it is all up to what fuel you run in it I am no longer spending money on it nor will I patent it becous it is too pricey and complicated
