I've seen this video before and was struck by a comment from someone else who said, "Any engine can run on fumes (idle) but it does not produce "power" when needed, such as stepping on the "gas" to move."

There is no "gas dump" into the engine to increase horse power.

But for a SHTF situation when an idling engine is needed to generate some sort of current, this is great to know.
