Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2009006177A2] Embodiments of the present invention provide a fuel supply system for combustion engines, whereby the temperatures of an oxidizer and fuel may be increased so that the temperatures approach but do not achieve an auto-ignition temperature for the fuel charge. The fuel charge may result in substantial improvements in fuel efficiency.
