TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THE IMPERATIVES OF SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT.
The concept of the internal combustion engine has remained unchanged for over 100 years. True, modern cars may have got more efficient, but the reality is that less than 1% of the power provided by the four cycles of - suck, squeeze, bang, blow - reciprocating engine is used for the work demanded – to move the driver from A to B. There has to be a better ways to provide for our transport needs, and the ISF continues to provide encouragement of that quest.
