One of the most promising is the Direct Injection Stratified Charge or DISC engine, now in the prototype stage. It is a lean-burn engine, operating at high compression ratios in the range of 11 to 11-1/2. It offers fewer emission problems than current engines and can operate at the octane levels of today's engines. But the engine will really come into its own if we turn to a more exotic option—methanol. With a research octane rating of 110, a methanol-fueled DISC engine could attain efficiencies 50 percent higher than a conventional gasoline engine.
