AB Engine Inc. Is Introducing a Method for Internal Combustion Engines
with Highest Fuel Efficiency Theoretically Possible
As of February 2012, AB Engine Inc. announced that it has designed and
completed a high fuel efficiency internal combustion engine (ICE) prototype
in order to demonstrate the “proof of principles” behind the AB Engine
patented technology (described in US patent #8,086,386). Testing the
novel AB Engine method and design with a “regular” or 87 octane rating
unleaded gasoline, yielded 44% (29% expected) higher fuel efficiency in comparison to a
similar conventional engine design.
The prototype was built by modifying an electrical generator powered by
gasoline internal combustion engine design with an 8:1 compression
ratio. To ensure the integrity of the fuel efficiency testing, one engine was
selected for modification from two identical generators previously
tested under a standard electrical load in order to ensure that they
have similar gasoline intake characteristics.
Next, the AB Engine team implemented one of the company’s patented
design solutions in order to modify the engine. The combustion chamber
was altered to a compression ratio of 17:1 and an additional control
valve was integrated in order to optimize the engine’s actual
compression ratio to the gasoline used during testing. The novel engine
design is flexible and allows adjustments to enable the use of any
available gasoline octane ratio on the market.
The modified engine “run time” was 1.44 times longer than the
conventional engine, utilizing the same amount of fuel under the same
electrical power load. If a car gets 25 miles per gallon with an engine
similar to the “control”, then the same car will run at 36 miles per
gallon if the engine is modified to an AB Engine. Translating a similar
scenario to a “Hybrid” vehicle with 40 miles per gallon, as advertized
on National TV, then modifying the Hybrid engine design to an AB Engine
would yield 58 miles per gallon for the same vehicle.
The company has begun license solicitations with manufacturers that are
using and producing internal combustion engines for automobiles (sedans,
SUVs, trucks, etc…), boats and ships, light or stationary electrical
generators and so on. The biggest advantage of using the AB Engine
technology is its ability to further improve the fuel efficiency of the
Hybrid Technologies that are becoming more popular in the automotive
a fuel saving solution.
The AB Engine technology is not limited to internal combustion engines
using gasoline. It has the same impact on fuel efficiency if implemented in
“diesel” engines and engines utilizing gas fuels.
