The two newest internal combustion engine technologies which have demonstrated the most promise in the last 25 years are the direct-injection stratified-charge (DISC) rotary engine  and the adiabatic diesel engine . The (DISC) engine is particularly attractive for aviation applications  because of its light weight, multi-fuel capability and potential for low fuel consumption. However, one disadvantage with the DISC engine is the weight and size of the liquid cooling system. NASA Lewis Research Center has supported a technology enablement program to advance the DISC rotary engine for general aviation applications and recognizes the importance of improvement in fuel consumption and reductions in the coolant system weight .
