A new internal combustion engine can get 70 to 90 miles per gallon and run on a wide variety of fuels, including vegetable oil, says its inventor, Mark Holtzapple, Texas A&M professor and head of the Department of Chemical Engineering. The engine is being developed by Holtzapple's independent company, StarRotor. "We probably will go after stationary applications and maybe military applications first. Eventually we are hoping to see it in cars," Holtzapple said.
