Seems like the hybrid engine is where our future is headed, so would creating a very efficient engine that turns waste heat into additional power worth the effort? Could be a good start while we work out making batteries last longer.

The engine works thru harnessing wasted heat energy created by the fuel combustion to add another two-strokes to the engine cycle. After the combustion stage water is injected into the super heated cyclinder and steam forms forcing the piston back down and in turn cools the engine. The result is normal levels of power using much less fuel and no need for an external cooling system.
