Clearly, the man is uncomfortable around scientists, engineers and BS detectors.

There is an update on the Hp2g.com website. They are now advertising a new E85 Flex Fuel chip. Also a claim is made that the "Hp2g Variable Displacement" technology will equal a sterling engine for the cylinders that are shut off.

And hardened valves and seats next, most likely.

Though you can run E85 in some cars without changes, you can't run E85 in just about any car.

Any thoughts on the sterling engine claim?

The claim on the Hp2g website indicates that the unused cylinders become sterling engines because of the leftover heat from earlier combustion.

Does that make any sense?

The HP2g Factory in Wauseon is shutting down

I still can't post links since I only have 3 post so far, but the Toledo Blade, and many other newspapers and TV stations in the Toledo/Northwest Ohio area have the story.

A lack of bank financing is being blamed and yet there are supposedly foreign companies interested.
