The Dream engine 1883

In late 1883, Daimler and Maybach patented the first of their engines fueled by ligroin. This engine was patented on December 16, 1883. It achieved Daimler's goal of being small and running fast enough to be useful at 750 rpm.[14] Improved designs in the next four years brought that up to 900 rpm.[14] Daimler had three engines built to this design early in 1884, and a flywheel was included in one of the engines. This design was smaller and lighter than engines by other inventors of the time. Daimler relied on hot tube ignition, until 1897, when he adopted the electrical ignition designed by Bosch.[14]
