Never heard of such a thing. Very interesting.

It sounds promising, but I fear the complexity of it and the likely expense when it breaks down. Plus, I wouldn't know how to fix it.

Yes, been waiting for this to happen. The electronics and timing are no problem they already do it with fuel injection and spark. Making a reliable solenoid, strong enough, fast enough, light enough, and cheap enough is a real challenge. The valve it's attached to gets hot as hell, being in the fire one, two, or three thousand times a minute, meaning the solenoid will see much of that heat too.

Why is he writing in both pounds and miles? Are UK odometers not in km?

That's a lot of spare tires. Clever of him to mount them in those locations and let them freewheel.
