Interesting story. I visited the supplied link, but I could not find information about horsepower, torque, time trial for 0 to 60 mph, projected price of the vehicle, etc.
Does anyone have any of that type of information?

This is great news,If and I mean a big IF, the company does not sell their patents for a astronomic amount of money!! If his company does go forward(as we pray it does), how much is the car going to sell for? It would be nice if they could realize selling more for less is better than less for a big price. Aiming for the people that need it more!!
Good Luck to Niama- Reisser Co.

The oil companies, Wall Street, politicians and the American automobile manufacturers will never allow this vehicle to be marketed. This company will most probably be paid off NOT to manufacture this vehicle.

Just a note, didn't VW state they were going to have a 200 mpg vehicle available in 2010? What happened?

You can just about bet, if this car catches on, they will find a way to raise the price of gas upto $50 per gallon. LOL

We are in the year 2011, it's about time a vehicle is manufactured like this. Unfortunately, I don't believe it will be made affordable to those of us that really would benefit from it or that it will be marketed anytime soon either. Of course seeing is belieiving, so until then............

I rarely post, but this is the best news I've read in the past decade. I've followed the development of better gas mileage vehicles since living in NYC in the 90's. This could be a game-changer for Ohio if it gets built here. It puts Ohio on the Global map as a developer of cutting edge technology that even the best automobile manufacturer's can't design and implement.
I'm a doctor and enjoy working on cars in my spare time. I love my loaded Chrysler 300, but look forward to selling it in the future for a car that gets the best gas mileage around - to reward that particular manufacturer on principle and innovation. Most important, this could end our dependence on the middle east for oil and save our choked economy, which could lead to choking theirs for a change. I applaud this inventor from the Coshocton area. Stick to your original intentions and please do not sell out. PS: AAAA++++. Way to go!

I agree, remember the article in Popular Mechanics about the guy that built a new carburetor that got 180 MPG, same thing happened to him. We put a man on the moon in 69 but we can't solve our dependence on OIL. Too many people are making a killing on it and greed is what runs this country.

I'm pretty sure Big Oil will find a way to pay this guy off and keep this car off the market so they can continue to rip off middle america

the us govt. would never let that happen. it would be nice thow. something has to change or this country is in a world of hurt. if we americans would just stick together and protest against fuel, the prices would drop. wait till the trucking companys pull there drivers off the road and park there trucks and go on strick. it will happen to just wait and see.
BIG guys buy them out

I've seen several of these prototypes developed, even several by vocational small engine KIDS. The news airs it, they disappear. My guess is that some big auto or oil company buys them out, because they don't want these available to customers. They'd prefer to continue to pilage the consumer.
Anyway, best of luck, or see you no more if you sell out. I bet the red tape is outrageous. They WANT you to give up is the general message.

It sounds good to be true. Not to take anything away from Mr. Reisser. You would think that the auto industry with all the technology and money could have developed this engine already. I believe Wall Street, oil companies, politicians and auto industry will prevent the engine from going on the market. This country in based on greed. The wealthy get wealthier and the poorer get poorer. Thank you Mr. Reisser for developing this engine when the auto industry refused to do it.

Please, please, please develop the car. Kasich should be meeting with the gentlemen and give them the necessary incentives to build in Ohio.
The more publicity this gets, the more likely he won't be bought out by someone who wants the project stopped.

Your right it will not be produced. We surfs are used for profit by all the controlling too big to fail corporations. Sad part is our government is controlled and paid off by them too.

The majority will always be a paycheck or two from being homeless with the global fraud and corruption that has been unfolding for many many years.
