IMPROVEMENT IN COMBUSTION ENGINE
An internal combustion engine is described in which one or more of the cylinders of the engine are used for generating hydrogen rich gases from hydrocarbon fuels. These gases are then mixed with air and injected into the remaining cylinders to be used as fuel. When heavy load conditions are encountered, hydrocarbon fuel may be mixed with the hydrogen rich gases and air and the mixture injected into the remaining cylinders as fuel.
