Title: Superlight micro-engine that weighs just 22lbs and is the size of a BACKPACK is powerful enough to drive a Ford Fiesta for 750 miles without refuelling

A hyper-efficient and super-light one-piston engine smaller than a backpack could render modern hybrids obsolete. 

Shaul Yaakoby, 53, is the engineer from Tel Aviv, Israel, that developed the engine and claims it is capable of churning out enough horsepower to run a small hatchback for 750 miles (1,200 km) without refuelling. 

The engine, manufactured by firm Aquarius Engine, is made of a only a dozen moving components. 

MailOnline has obtained data from the firm which reveals the car engine to be 10 per cent more efficient than the average vehicle. 

It is now undergoing field tests and the company expects its generator it to be commercially available by the end of 2020 and in cars by 2022.

An engine smaller than a backpack and with only one piston could replace the internal combustion engine and render recent hybrids obsolete. The engine (pictured), manufactured by firm Aquarius Engine is made of a only dozen moving components

Mr Yaakoby said its simplicity enables the lightweight design to be so efficient.

'What makes the Aquarius Engine so revolutionary is its simple design, we took the traditional combustion engine that hasn't really been changed in 150-years and we stripped it down to the bare necessities,' he said. 

'This means a 10kg [22lbs] engine made up of 20 parts that is more efficient than a 200kg [220lbs] engine made of 200 parts.

'For over a century cars have been carrying around a ton of dead weight that has costed us power and efficiency. 

'The Aquarius Engine is cleaner, lighter and greener than anything that has proceeded it.'  

Aquarius claims it is the 'lowest cost, highest power to weight ratio engine known to exist'.

The company is purportedly in talks with 'a number of major car manufactures' to use the engine in hybrid cars, but refused to comment on who this may be.  

Gal Fridman, Chairman of Aquarius Engines, says the engine could also be used as a back-up generator. 

He claims it could power an average flat for almost a month without the need to charge or refuel.

'Households are quickly moving from a television, washing machine and oven to one or maybe even two electric cars, underfloor heating and personal computer servers,' he said. 

'That means the power grid needs to supply way more electricity than ever before and simply won't be able to keep-up.

'That's why we will be offering a personal way of generating your own green electricity at home.'

Not this family. I’ll keep my fossil fueled truck. The tree huggers can kiss my asshole. I’ll fucking switch to electric vehicles when they are cheaper, bigger, travel farther and safer... than the WORST GAS VEHICLE.

I'm the infidel... Allah warned you about. كافر المسلح

Revolutionary engines have been around before but they all seem to disappear, unless it uses lots of fuel it is no use to the petro-chemical industry

Seems to me that using this engine for an in-house generator would be ideal.

As a car engine - not so much.

..unless it uses lots of fuel it is no use to the petro-chemical industry

I agree, but Big Oil is still making obscene profits.

I don't see us going to all electric cars in the foreseeable future, even though the government is pushing them on consumers along with self driving cars.

Computer Hope

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.
