The internal combustion motor has been responsible for many developments in the industrial sciences, but its greatest achievement has been the promotion of economical and efficient transportation. The improvements in the design of the modern gas tractor, which have made it an entirely practical and satisfactory source of power, have also opened up fields where it can be used to advantage and profit that would have been impossible with steam traction engines formerly the vogue, or other forms of power. It is not the writers intention to underestimate the advantages and utility of the steam tractor; it has and still is performing work of great value. The gas tractor, however, in its modern forms, is able to accomplish everything the steam propelled type can do, and has important advantages the other construction does not possess. It does not recjuire services of a skilled engineer to operate, it has a wider range of action, is more independent of fuel and water supply in that it does not consume much liquid in cooling, and is more economical of fuel because it utilizes a larger proportion of the potential energy or heat units of the combustible by burning it directly in tlie cylinders. The man advantages of the internal combustion or gas motor have made it the recognized prime mover where economical operation and minimum attendance is required, so it is but natural that it should reign supreme in the fie Ulof general transportation.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
