Continental, through contract with the U. S. Army Ordnance Corps, has developed a multifuel diesel engine capable of burning combat gasoline. This engine is of a conventional design except for those features which contribute to its multifuel capabilities. These features include the Hypercycle combustion system, a special intake swirl port, a water-jacketed intake manifold, and a manifold flame heater for cold starting. Engines have been installed in Army M35, 2 1/2 -ton trucks and extensively tested on the intended fuels under Arctic, temperate, and desert conditions, during which the multifuel capabilities have been clearly demonstrated.
