Tiny Little Engine

The world's tiniest V12 engine. [VIDEO]

Is that Italian text? I don't know if my questions would have been answered had it been subtitled in English. About all I could make out is that he spent 1220 hours building it, which is an impressively short period.

Also don't know what fuel it burns. I'm thinking alcohol, but I don't know if alcohol will compression ignite, and this does not have spark ignition. So maybe kerosene?

Interesting.
You can make the engine smaller but does it matter that that liquid/gas characteristics of the fuel cannot be made smaller?

Someone said they thought it was a compressed air engine. Not a compressor, but an engine that runs on compressed air. It may well be, but there is some kind of tank on the front that looked like a fuel tank. Beats me.

Ah. Castillian Spanish.
Castilian Spanish - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Funny thing - I once hired the college student son of one of our employees to translate our machinery manuals into Spanish, back when we first started exporting to Latin America. Paid him under the table, like a contractor. His BYU Spanish training did not serve us so well, if you believe what our customers said.

Whatever it is it's beautiful.
On the Spanish topic, it seems that your experience with school taught Spanish is the same as my friends natural Mexican Spanish. He recently took a trip to Spain and got reamed because his Spanish was so bad. They could not understand how a Gomez could speak so badly.

Now we hire a professional translation firm, and they hire translators that are native to whatever language and region you choose to target. But we still get complaints because Mexican Spanish is different that Columbian, is different than Venezuelan, is different than Paraguayan. They all seem to think we should have the whole damned thing translated in their home town. You can't win.

It might could be, that it runs on glow fuel like an R/C airplane ,car, boat, or helo.... those run a blend of nitro-methanol with a percent of castor oil... my son has probably 15 - 20 planes that run on the nitro blend... the engines are a 2 stroke diesel in style.... very strong, and they also make a four stroke version too..... This little guy seems though to be more of the 2 stroke variation..... It is pretty darned awesome though! A palm of the hand V12.....
