The technique was efficient to give 1.7 times more efficient fuel than normal fuel. The module won first prize for Utkarsh event.
Shrinivas Rajaram, Parind Desai, Nishu Goyal, Sanmati Jain and Vishal have designed one fuel crusher and compressor that performs mentioned acts by consuming mechanical energy.
