I didn't have any particular types in mind, so I'm probably asking the question badly.  The Otto cycle engine uses a spark to ignite a fuel/air mixture in a 4 cycle process.  To circumvent the patents James Atkinson invented the Atkinson Cycle Engine, which is also a 4 cycle.  Is there a similar relationship involving the development of Petter engines?

I say dissolve as much as you can in your biodiesel, then slice off pieces to throw in your oil-burning stove.   ;)

No, I got that.  But I'd been given to understand that because of possible patent infringement issues the two engines differed.

I've ca looked through this board and elsewhere, but I can't find a description of the differences between the two.  I'm pretty sure some of you here might know  ;) and I'm hoping you can explain it to me.
