I don't get it. Unless the two stroke is direct injected, and uses a sealed 4 stroke type lower end (no more loop scavaging)to lubricate the motor, where does the emmission savings come from? You're still burning oil, which causes most of the "heavy" pollution. It would have to work like a Detroit Deisel V8 that's turbo-supercharged, that uses an injector and an exhaust valve. And what about the Jeepnies? Where do they fit in?

Forget that crap. Who's going to invest in the Klazy Ken Methane Capture Saddle and Injection Manifold? With these latest revelations about Snarli, I think we've got a prototype beta tester rarin' to go. That man has to be one of the largest mobile sources of free fuel on this continent!
