They say it's gas powered. I'm never sure when Americans say 'gas' do they mean petrol, (gasoline) or natural gas. The engine was used to compress natural gas so I guess that was its fuel. Is it really running in that video or is it being turned over with, (lots of) compressed air?
Anyway, it's poetry in motion for me.
