Biofuel Breakthrough – the 1411-P

The Swedish research company Løøflirpa announced a startling new breakthrough in biofuels: a car engine that runs on urine. “It’s unbelievable,” said Løøflirpa spokesperson Avril d’Poisson. “This could change the way we fill up our cars forever.”

The breakthrough was made by researcher Tonto Necio. “It was just serendipity. One of my laboratory assistants, Majkat Jokaar, had been working a long shift and was obviously getting rather desperate, so he made use of a handy glass beaker, as he was in the middle of controlling a chemical reaction that couldn’t be left unattended for more than a few seconds. Later, we were testing different types of biofuels in our new engine design and didn’t realise what was in that particular beaker. The engine ran reasonably well with the contents of that beaker – better than some of the other alternative biofuels we had tried – and we were astonished when Majkat confessed what was in the beaker.”

Researchers at Løøflirpa stated that the new engine is able to make use of the reaction between dihydrous oxide, nitrogen and organic compounds within urine, which is passed through a thermolytic chamber within the engine to release a non-toxic gas that provides the necessary compression for combustion within the piston chambers. The natural gas is very clean-burning and produces very little exhaust, apart from trace amounts of CO2, methane and water.  “I think we’ve found the ultimate biofuel,” said Avril d’Poisson.

Further trials by the Løøflirpa research team are underway to fine-tune the small four-cylinder engine, known as the 1411-P. State-of-the-art electronic injection and  filtration componentry have aided smoother running. “The performance of the engine seems to depend on what has been eaten within three hours prior to filling the engine,” said Tonto Necio. “Our researchers are experimenting with various foodstuffs to find the optimum biofuel blend – so far, a combination of high fructose and complex carbohydrates seems to work well.” Dr Necio concluded by stating that research is still ongoing and that more volunteer participants are needed to continue the refining process.
