There HAVE BEEN a very small number of people who have found my web-page references to my peculiar engine, and who clearly have a lust for billions of dollars of profits, but even they have never shown any interest in my actual technology. They just see the possibility where if they might get GM or Ford to need to make 5,000,000 new engines every year, that THEY would certainly receive billions of dollars if they could cause that to happen!
There is another logical reason why I have tolerated delaying releasing the information for my very different technology of an automotive engine. The Oil Industry has long published annual Reports which show that ALL the oil that might be available for digging up, is all expected to have been completely removed by about the year 2043. Whether or not anyone would change over to my more efficient technology, it seems certain that it would take at least 20 years to start to mass produce all those very different vehicle engines. That suggests that the FIRST automobiles based on my technology might only come into existence around the year 2035 or so. That would mean that only limited used could be made, due to a world wide lack of availability of petroleum and gasoline!
Interestingly, during the 1920s, when thousands of creative inventors were trying everything they could think of to improve the performance of automobiles and trucks, at least one company had come 'whisker-close' to having discovered the technology I found eighty years later! But they clearly never realized the full importance of what was in their grasp, and they never advanced the technology except in minimal ways.
In early June 2004, my strange little engine produced about 12 horsepower at the lawnmower engine's standard Governor-limited speed of 3600 rpms.
But I got too enthusiastic and having deleted its Governor, I was able to wind it up to higher revs. At around 6300 rpm, that little engine briefly produced slightly over 43 horsepower. The engine then demonstrated the minimal mechanical strength of generic lawnmower engine parts, and it showed that they could not survive. There was a massive disintegration, and it was quite fortunate that I happened to be standing in a place where I was not injured (or killed). That tiny engine had a Displacement of about 9 cid or about 0.15 liters.
I later Designed and began to collect parts to build a larger prototype, one which would use a lot of parts from VW Beetle pancake engines and which would have a displacement of arould 72 cid (or 1.2 liters). My experience with the earlier prototype suggested that this engine might be capable of producing around 350 horsepower at around 6,000 rpm, where I then intended to install it in a 1985 Corvette I have. I felt pretty confident that the Corvette would have AT LEAST the standard Corvette performance (which is VERY impressive) while also having fuel economy that was spectacular! I intended to remove the conventional engine and transmission, which would have removed around 600 pounds of weight from the Corvette.

But I was an old man even then and it had never been realistic for me to actually complete building that second prototype engine or further modifying the Corvette it was to go into.
So I never found out whether this was realistic or else a silly thought!
