Israeli inventor Yehud Shmueli modernized the design of a traditional piston engine to use a mixture of 70% water and 30% alcohol instead of gasoline or diesel.

According to the engineer, a new system cansimple enough to apply to any existing engine. He also claims that after modernization, the engine can save up to 50% on fuel, works 60% more efficiently due to high torque, and does not emit harmful sulfur and nitrogen oxides into the atmosphere.

After six years of system development and improvement he organized a MayMaan Research startup tooffer car manufacturers an environmentally friendly alternative to diesel engines. To date, the company has created four operational prototypes, including options for a passenger car and a generator.

Such an engine is universal becauseTo create a fuel mixture, you can use not only ethanol, but also any other alcohol, and liquid fuel does not require special storage and transportation conditions.

MayMaan representatives say engines withelectric drives will not be able to replace diesel ones used in trucks, ships, generators and large equipment, therefore they are confident in the success of their technology.

Earlier, we also reported on the development of a system of electro-hydraulic valves, which allows to save 20% of fuel by optimizing gas exchange in internal combustion engines with spark ignition.
