They provide a more efficient method of traveling. People don't know how much the world has changed, due to the operation of the car engine. The car engine is a very complex piece of machinery. It consists of a series of wires and different types of parts. The car engine is constantly being improved to be more efficient and will revolutionize the future of transportation.

That way they decrease the fatalities of car accidents. The carburetor is being improved to use gasoline more efficiently so that the gas will run longer. The drive train is being improved so that the gears will run smoother. Cars are also being made with electric engines that run off of a battery. One of the main parts on an engine is the carburetor. The carburetor sends gasoline through a circulatory system to run the engine. It also cleanses the gasoline before it enters the engine.

The prices are getting outrageous and the gasoline producers are doing this because they think that if the people don't buy their gasoline, the people would not be able to survive and get to work. They're wrong, because with all of this new technology they're coming out with it will revolutionize the future. Bibliography: Works Cited Kuns, Ray F. Automotive Essentials.
