FYI ... AFAIK this is just the most recent 'version' prototype ... sense the company founded back around ~2004 ... They have had other prototypes of earlier versions... As I recall , there is a SAE paper from ~2010 on a 20HP 140cc prototype ( the "M2" )

Previously, LiquidPiston has demonstrated proof-of-principle 70 and 40 HP engine prototypes (X1 and X2) that are capable of running for a short time at light load, and demonstrate compression ignition of diesel or JP-8 fuel, and net indicated efficiency of 33% (at light-load)
I'm wishing them the best for more improvements in the future.
