I'm with Dare. :D

Okay, back to reality...

I suppose you could spawn the fuel so that it has some quadratic negative attraction and linear positive attraction, so it will put some space between the particles, but not explode. Then, onCollide with more of itself, it would spawn a larger black circle with negative attraction, which would then push the other fuel particles away from it and into each other...

Then you would have a nitroglycerin-fueled car instead of gasoline!

What I think diesel engines really do is compress-heat air, and squirt fuel into that. So a more traditional spawn engine is actually a better analog than my nitroglycerin! :shock:

However, according to the HowStuffWorks article on the Quasiturbine Engine, carburetor-ed air and fuel ignited purely by compression will blow up a piston engine, but is more efficient than any of the other three methods in an engine that is mechanically strong enough to handle it.

So, the intake valve will spawn "wet" nitroglycerin, which will activate itself after a short amount of time. Wet nitro can't explode.
This will compress, explode, and you know the drill.

Man, we're going to need a really big flywheel...

Negatorio, but search Algobox and you might find something similar.
