This is very very interesting if you know anything about internal combustion engines...

Sort of a rotary engine taken to a new level. (note: that is different from a "radial") Few moving parts and higher compression than diesel, very effiecient, low low emissions, lightweight and can burn multiple fuel types. Also has minimal need for oil. Also it looks like any shop with the plans and a CNC mill could make one fairly cheaply.

That is not what it is for CobraJ!

Actually you can burn used food oil in a slightly modified diesel engine. But your exhaust will smell like what you burn, so you will have dogs chasing your car.

If you get your oil from a fish and chips shop you might get cats.
