Future cars could be more powereful, use half the petrol, reduce CO2 emissions and reduce to almost 0 unburnt elements

Engineers and Scientifics working in thermonuclear Pulsotron discovered by chance a new way of burning faster and with greater efficiency the fuel into the combustion chamber. “We measured that at least 99% of the fuel can be burnt in less than 90 microseconds” said Javier Lopez. We calculate that efficiency will jump from 25-30 to 50%. Also F-1 racing cars could increase its power to 200%.
A car equipped with this new ignition system could burn gas, diesel or new high ones weight fuels obtained from non conventional crude.
It was found that during Pulsotron-2 August test campaign during testing of a new specific target, the new target performance was good enough but also it burned high temperature plastics used in the Pulsotron-2 tower damaging it. We discovered using high speed cameras that the electromagnetic pulse generated burned almost plastics in its path “It was incredible, high performance plastics as kapton or mylar and other with high temperature resistance where burn in less than 100 microseconds”
In following oscilloscope plot it can be seen how the emitting light burst duration was about 90 microseconds:

Actually we are focused on the next test campaign designing and building new targets. Pulsotron is open to companies and government agencies in order to collaborate in the future projects.
