- It may seem as though there are no significant benefits to the inefficiencies of internal combustion engines. After all,
- they waste fuel, resources and money; they pollute the environment and create potential health risks; and to some people, too much can go wrong with them to ever make them worth trying to understand.
- I, however, will always stand by my love of the painstakingly choreographed dance that takes place within a
- combustion engine; all the parts working in time to create a glorious, gas-guzzling, ozone depleting, peace disturbing chunk of steel, rubber, glass and aluminum that can go 0-60 in a matter of mere seconds. And I would like to hear anyone curse the inefficient heat loss of their engine when it is pumping 70° air into a -40° cab at 6 a.m. in the middle of Fairbanks' frigid winter.
