Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Ted asks: Eric, I really enjoy the articles that you post on Lewrockwell.com. I have tried to contact you by email but I have never gotten a response. I know that you are busy. I have designed a new type of engine. It is a 2 stroke and what makes this engine special is that it lubricates like a 4 stroke engine. You do not add lubricate to the fuel at any time in the combustion cycle. This means cleaner emissions. I was hoping that you could put me in touch with the right people at the automotive companies. I would be glad to show you what I have and then you can decide if what I have designed is worth while. Thank you for your time.
My reply: Hi Ted! I decided to post this here because there may someone out there who can help with this. While I do know some engineers working for several car companies, I don’t think they’re in a position to do much as they are employees of those companies. But before you do anything, I’d encourage you to seek a patent to protect your idea. Then I would approach prospective interested parties.
I know that at least two car manufacturers are toying with two-stroke designs (chiefly because of the high output vs a four stroke) but the main issue confronting them is emissions – which your design may address.
