The U.S. Army is testing new power packs that could run on virtually any fuel, including gasoline, ethanol and diesel.
Developed by INI Power of Morrisville, N.C., the alternative energy power packs could even run on such nonconventional fuels as grain alcohol and paint thinner, anything that’s 151-proof or stronger.
“Anything that’s flammable is fair game,” said INI Power founder Larry Markoski.
The Army has an interest in such technologies, and is testing INI’s device along with similar solutions through its Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC).
