That is fine, but if you have a source for where this comes from I would actually like to see/read it, as it is contrary to everything I have ever heard.I'm going to agree to disagree. My stuff obviously comes from a different place than your stuff. No sense in writing novels that won't change anything in the end. This was supposed to help a guy decide how to homestead off grid, not the finer points of debatable physics. I yield.

All an engine does it turns heat energy into movement energy. In a diesel engine it turns it into rotating mass. I'm just not understanding how so much additional energy is used to power a nearly identical amount of rotating load simply by doubling the number of cylinders.
