Man creates car that runs on liquid air

A British man says he has converted his car to run on liquid oxygen.

Peter Dearman converted the engine on his 25-year-old Vauxhall Nova to only powered only by liquid air, ABC News reported.

"We're starting to run out of fossil fuels now. We've got to do something," said Dearman. "Hopefully this offers a solution."

In his engine, "the liquid air boils and creates a pressure that forces the piston down. As the piston goes down, the gas expands and cools -- but it's able to absorb more heat from the heat exchange fluid, making it much more efficient," Dearman said.

Dearman said he believes he may have created the world's most efficient car.

"Everything that's used in here can be recycled very easily," he said. "Very little energy goes into actually producing the car. So the car is very cheap."

The inventor said he hopes that by next year, there is a car designed around his engine.

"I've done sort of the basic work, and they're going to refine it and bring it onto the next stage for us," he said.

Greener cars could slash US pollution by 2050: study
Washington March 18, 2013
Greener cars that use alternative fuels could help the United States slash its greenhouse gas emissions from everyday driving a full 80 percent by 2050, according to a scientific study out Monday. That could lead to a more than 13 percent cut in overall US pollution into the atmosphere, with consumer-driven cars and small trucks currently responsible for 17 percent of the nation's greenhouse ... read more
