AB Engine Incorporated introduces a New Method (AB Engine Method) to convert burning gasoline, gas or diesel fuels into mechanical energy while still within the bounds of the conventional Otto, Miller, Diesel or similar internal combustion engine (ICE) design constraints. The new method allows for an ICE design with the highest fuel efficiency theoretically possible.

AB Engine was granted by two US Patents: #8,086,386 December 27, 2011   (PDF) and  #8,396,645 March 12, 2013

    The Company has also China patents #ZL 2008 8 0100951.9 November 14,2012 and patent pending in Europe.

In February 2012, AB Engine Inc. announced that it has designed and completed a high fuel efficiency internal combustion engine (ICE) prototype in order to demonstrate the "proof of principles" behind the AB Engine Technology. Testing the novel AB Engine method and design with an 87 octane rating  gasoline yielded 44% (with 28% theoretical prediction) higher fuel efficiency in comparison to a similar conventional engine design (see News & Media  for details).


To see AB Engine Method, please, refer to technology page and technology presentation and technology advantages

The AB Engine technology will also improve the efficiency of today’s most efficient vehicle design, the Hybrid design. The combination of the Hybrid design with the AB Engine technology will result in unparalleled mileage per gallon improvements. Implementing AB Engine technology in turbo-charged engines, Miller type, will deliver powerful and improved efficiency engines as well.


"High Efficiency and high power density Internal Combustion Engine" Patents Portfolio For Sale


AB Engine Incorporated has prepared an Intellectual Property (IP) package for sale to be made available to all interested parties.

AB Engine Incorporated is proposing a unique opportunity to internal combustion gasoline and diesel engine designers as well as manufacturers to possess the patented design method that allows for the most efficient internal combustion engine theoretically possible.


With patent priority as of May 29, 2007, this IP portfolio covers multiple possible patent infringements and allows for 13 more years of proprietary design in the vast market where internal combustion engines are used.   Mimicking efficiency of the theory behind the Atkinson engine method, the AB Engine method provides the same or greater fuel efficiency for gasoline and diesel based engines without the mechanical complications associated with the Atkinson design.  The uniquely designed and electronically controlled intake valves provide enormous variety in engine optimization options related to fuel efficiency and power output.  The IP package also protects a unique engine configuration with exhaust gases heat recovery and a single electrical or mechanical output, giving an opportunity to the engine designer to further increase an engine’s efficiency and power output. 


This is a unique opportunity for those conducting business related to engines in the automotive, marine and electric generators industries as well as numerous other areas where engines are in use.

Since it was first developed more than a century ago, the performance of internal combustion engines (ICE) has suffered from low thermal efficiency mostly due to the low compression-expansion ratios of burnt fuels.  AB Engine Incorporated introduces an innovative method that more efficiently converts thermal energy from burned gas, gasoline and diesel fuels into mechanical energy without exceeding the constraints of conventional ICE designs (e.g., Otto and Miller)


The disclosed portfolio describes the most efficient ICE engine theoretically possible, proposing a method that will increase efficiency 20-45% over existing ICE technology.  In addition to improvements in fuel efficiency, the AB Engine method reduces noise, engine temperature and exhaust gas pressure, while increasing linear output power with respect to RPM. Moreover, the AB Engine is compatible with different fuel types and intake gas conditions, as well as the Hybrid and Turbocharged engine designs. The AB Engine improves both fuel efficiency and performance without the disadvantages of alternative designs (e.g. Otto, Miller and Atkinson) which involve complex mechanical solutions.
