Inspired by: I'm a Pro Se Inventor and currently working independently on new concepts for both the automotive and defense sectors. My partner on this long-term project is Patrick J. Derbin and has 40 plus years in Diesel Engine development and testing experience in Detroit. Patrick is the "Named Inventor" on this patent submission and I'm the "Co-Inventor". Together, we have years of experience in developing this concept and received the patent after having a successful Phase1 SBIR Government contract in Ann Arbor, Michigan (EPA Contract No. EPD13029). Top diesel researchers and University researchers have personally endorsed it and always ask "why hasn't this been invented before?" I have worked well over 4 decades combined, in both the diesel sector in Detroit and defense sector in LA and I'm driven to invent concepts that both help our environment and protect our citizens of the US. I'm a member of LinkedIn.
This invention is US Patent #8,955,474
