Again, high school kids find a way, to make efficiant use of alternitive fuels. In my own engine set up, I've been able to get the 0 to 60 in 4 seconds, but not the MPG, so far, best I can get is 27mpg, it's still better mileage than the stock 13mpg you get from a big engine.
But these kids, being misfits and dropouts, finding a class they like, and not only comming up with a cool engine set up, but also self esteem to get better grades, and really make a differance in the world.
Hopfuly they don't get shot down by the automotive and oil industries. :}

For the same reason that many other major energy breakthroughs have been reported but never given the headlines they deserve. Those who are reaping huge profits from oil sales have much more political and media influence than you might imagine."
