START YOUR ENGINES! HERE ARE 7 GIFS THAT EXPLAIN HOW ENGINES RUN

The Stirling Engine

Engine that runs on a heat source! Pretty cool in my opinion, works by the gas heating/expanding, then cooling to pull back the piston. Very quiet and used almost exclusively in submarines.

Wankel/Rotary Engine

My personal favorite, can make a lot of power in small size with only 3 moving parts! However, they are pretty inefficient, the last car to use this was a Mazda RX-8.

4-stroke Engine

Pretty common nowadays, it’s what you’ll find in your Hondas and Toyotas, fuel efficient, with enough power to keep you moving.

Radial Engine

Used mostly in small aircraft for the propeller

Axial Engine

Pretty interesting design, but not used widely since they are hard to make, and they cannot work at high RPMs

Jet Engine

Air sucked in through the front and out the back with a controlled explosion in the middle. Great for large planes, and stuff.

The 2-stroke

Used mostly for motorcycles, and other smaller types of vehicles. Great on efficiency, with decent power. Pretty loud sometimes
