LOL I hope that is a typo.. The poor bugger can't get any decent funding but he was getting about 60mpg back in the 70's and he reckons the design is a lot more efficient now. I just like the idea of being able to use anything to power the steam engine.

You can use nearly anything to power a turbine. Combustible perfume or ethanol, gasoline or swamp gas.

I remembered reading in a Popular Science about a steam-powered Volkswagen from the 1970s. I'll see if I can find it.

Looks like we need pg 137 onward. Also, can you shrink those down to about 1/3 the current size? They are quite huge.
