A Green City, own power, debt free, people working together to build each other's homes. Grow own food. Compost, recycle. Use of solar, wind. Composting toilets. How would you like to live in a city where every citizen was debt free, owned their own home and had no power bill, water/garbage bill, gas bill or credit card bills? Ate home grown food with no pesticides and made money selling their arts and crafts around the country at Farmer's markets? Now wouldn't that be a city!?

I don't think anyone is suppressing this, I think it's been a bit more difficult to get running than they originally thought. I can see a lot of technical difficulties even though it is a simple machine in principle. L

(I have emailed the inventor and invited him to supply video of it running.)

That'd be good, the design is very interesting, but it could be a nightmare to get into running order? My main thoughts are around sealing various bits and loading on the pistons. L

Oh yes, but I noticed a reference to TDC in the patent application... :) I get the general idea, but maybe I need to spend an hour reading it again, and I might this eve'. For something that's been going for at least 5 years I'd expect it to be installed in something and burning fuel by now (if it works)? L

I'd like to be able to understand how this actually works - I don't think either of us do? L

As I said: there are a lot of things wrong with this, not running is one of them. If this ran you would expect (would you not) some rpm, torque, bhp statistics and some performance graphs?

Running it on air is completely useless as far as I am concerned.

There are a lot of things that don't look right about this... mostly theoretical I think. L
