The Gun Engine is the engine of the future. If
brought into mass production, it will change
our world in terms of fuel consumption.
FUN FACTS ON CURRENT
“There are over 600 million motor vehicles in the world today.
If present trends continue, the number of cars on Earth will
double in the next 30 years.”
Global Warming Magazine
“If all the cars from the U.S. were taken
and lined up from bumper to bumper,
there would be enough cars to go to the
moon from earth and back.”
Pathogens that exist in vehicle exhaust include:
carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur
dioxide, benzene, formaldehyde, and polycyclic
Some of us drive vehicles like these….
And some of us drive vehicles like this….
So fuel inefficient!
Vehicles today emit more carbon dioxide
into the air than ever before! Direct
exposure to this type of exhaust could be
poisonous or deadly!
Paved parking lots create rainwater
runoffs that pollute our lakes and rivers.
Can you imagine the oil, antifreeze,
and other chemicals from our vehicles
that drips down onto the ground? All of
this gets washed away with the rain!
There are three forms of new technology that are being developed…
Hydrogen converts water into steam,
which creates the power to the engine.
Hydrogen is highly combustible.
The fuel is created from biomass. This will
reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It’s
very similar to diesel engines.
Electric cars produce no harmful
emissions, but these engines cannot
create and store large amounts of power.
The answer is no. There is no vehicle on the
market at this time that can get 220 miles per
As we are about to explore, there is a new type
of engine under development that may,
someday, get 220 mpg.
Introducing Gun EngineIntroducing Gun Engine
This engine is not your typical car engine.
However, it does use a lot of the same
components. They are just used in a
This is a smaller, lightweight engine,
which in turn make the vehicle more
This engine does not require the
vehicle to have a conventional
cooling system or a transmission.
The Creator of the Gun Engine
Kazimierz “Stan” Holubwicz
•Stan Holubwicz is the genius behind the Gun
•He is responsible for a few other inventions
including a rotary engine, which could one day
outperform the Gun Engine, and a run-of-the
river turbine which would be super efficient.
•Stan hails from Burnaby, British Columbia,
Difference Between Normal Engine Operation &Difference Between Normal Engine Operation &
Gun Engine OperationGun Engine Operation
Normal Engine Operation
Intake Cycle – Brings in the air/fuel mixture
Compression Cycle – Compresses air/fuel mixture
Power Cycle – Spark Plugs light off air/fuel mixture and forces
piston down the cylinder to produce power.
Exhaust Cycle – Pushes out the spent gases (i.e. CO2,
Nitrogen Dioxide, Benzene)
This process occurs four time
under normal engine
Intake Cycle – Brings in air/water mixture
Compression Cycle – Compresses air/water mixture
Power Cycle – The expansion of water/air turns into
steam, which creates the power
Exhaust Cycle – Expels water/air mixture out
Gun Engine Operation
The above process occurs once with the gun
engine, and the water/air process occurs
three times following the air/fuel process.
The difference between the normal engine
and the gun engine is the amount of
combustion pressure pressing down on the
floating piston. This negative energy is what
might be considered as the shot that is being
fired from the gun.
These are the four cycles of how an

Because this engine
uses two times the
amount of water, the
water/air mixture will be
exhausted out the
tailpipe instead of the
fuel/air mixture. This
will result in much
This new style engine
still produces power with
1/3 less fuel normally
used. It is said that with
this engine, consumers
can travel 220 mpg.
There is no need for a cooling
system because of the amount
of water used to power the
engine. Also, the transmission
can be omitted. Without these
components, the vehicle will
be more lightweight. Also, the
entire engine does not need to
be made out of metal, it can be
made out of injection molded
