Thanks for posting the link. It's good to learn of improved technologies but most of it goes nowhere. For anyone interested, the first 30 minutes of this video gets into more of the technical discussions of the engine.

They claim fewer moving parts, lower emissions, better fuel economy, greater power to weight ratio and lower cost vs. conventional diesels. This video was put out in the fall of 2014.  If the engine has all the great attributes that the company alludes to, then why hasn't it started to become mainstream?

Lots and lots of money tied up in older diesels, molds for the castings, people have to fix the molds, tons of repair parts on the shelves etc etc.

Cleaner alone isnít good enough, if it was really about clean air, why are we still allowing imports from countries that basically ignore the same environmental laws North American manufacturers have been forced to follow for decades? All the crap they spew in the air there eventually finds its way here.
