The heat contained within the combustion chamber can actually run the vehicle for about 10 minutes without burning any fuel at all. This means that the city MPG will be extremely good compared with today’s Internal Combustion Engines.
This means that you first have to heat it for 10 minutes before extracting any useful energy? This is good for vehicles that are almost always running, but not for the typical morning then afternoon 30 minute commute. The good side is that once it's fired up you don't need fuel for the last 10 minutes of your ride.

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
