If you have a car, odds are, the engine under the hood is an internal combustion engine. That means, among other things, that every few hundred miles or so, you pull into a gas station and fill up the car’s fuel tank with gasoline or diesel. That’s how it’s been since the first cars hit the road.
There are other ways to power a car – and 100 years from now, who knows what will be under the hood. But today, and for the foreseeable future, it’s the internal combustion engine that will be getting us where we need to go.
Is that a bad thing? Nope.
Nope – because it’s a proven, reliable, affordable engine – and because the internal combustion engine keeps getting better.
