Alpha-Otto Technologies: Pioneering Engine Innovation

We are thrilled to share a milestone achievement with our network: we’ve successfully run a spark ignition engine on kerosene-based heavy fuel, showcasing the remarkable versatility of our REV force combustion system. This breakthrough underscores our commitment to innovation and our ability to push the boundaries of what’s possible in engine technology.

While there’s more work ahead, particularly in enhancing cold start capabilities, this achievement marks a significant step forward. For the enthusiasts among us, we’ve achieved comparable power output with heavy fuel as with traditional gasoline but did see a significant reduction in exhaust gas temperatures — a decrease of approximately 200°F (93°C).

Our journey doesn’t stop here. We’re on a relentless pursuit to further refine engine controls and calibration. Our goal? To expand the adaptability of our system to an even wider range of fuels, including clean options like hydrogen, methanol, and ethanol. This is more than just an engineering feat; it’s a stride towards more sustainable and versatile energy solutions.

Your support and engagement mean the world to us. Share this journey, spread the word, and stay tuned for more updates as we continue to redefine the future of fuel technology.
