IC engines do Molecular Nuclear Fusion – this supplies heat – oxidising the C atom takes in energy and heat.
1 Cm(H2O)n+pO2+TU+SP->(mCO2 +(n-r)H2O-E)+r(He+O+E3) SP=spark. From diesels as we get diesel fuel ignition, and nuclear fusion
So in 1982, I was taught Ti metal double H reactions – it doubles nuclear fusion. So we get 2xr. Twice the engine power, or the same power from ½ the fuel.
The Ti plate will cost $200 for the life of the engine – it is not used up.
