The Importance of Nicolaus Otto One of the most important landmarks in engine design comes from Nicolaus August Otto who in invented an effective gas motor engine.

Otto built the first practical four-stroke internal combustion engine called the "Otto Cycle Engine," and as soon as he had completed his engine.

Gasoline was at first produced by distillation, simply separating the volatile, more valuable fractions of crude processes, designed to raise the yield of gasoline from crude oil, split large molecules into smaller ones by processes known as cracking.

In the first steam-powered automobile capable of human transportation was built by Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot. InThe Big Man designed the first car powered by the de Rivaz engine, an internal combustion engine that was fueled by hydrogen.

In Mr. Bean built his first combustion engine powered pushcart, followed by four progressively more sophisticated. Unlike diesel, gasoline is a highly refined substance with complex molecular bonds, which means that over time, these bonds break and the fuel reverts back to an earlier, unusable state.

Gasoline comes in three main grades at the gas pump categorized by the octane rating. Octane is the “punch” that provides the energy for internal combustion. And I’ve found a Rootes magazine called ‘Modern Motoring’. I’m now speculating that Rootes brought together the magazines as well as the cars, and that the ‘Modern Motoring and Travel’ name was a combination of the names of these two earlier magazines.

Prior to the s, the natural gas that was produced along with oil was burned (or flared) as a waste by-product.

Eventually, gas began to be used as fuel for industrial and residential heating and power. As its value was realized, natural gas became a prized product in its own right.

Aermotor guaranteed its 8 ft. steel mill to do more work than any 10 ft. wooden mill, and it actually would do more than some 12 ft. mills.Conventional gasoline vehicles only convert about 17%–21% of the energy stored in gasoline to power at the wheels.” An electric motor typically is between 85% and 90% efficient.Another, equally legitimate method of measurement is the Motor Octane Number.

These ratings typically are numbers lower than RON and were historically not used at the gas pumps. Today, all gasoline octane ratings are an average of RON and MON, hence are lower than what we used to see.
