Proclaiming the "green" credentials of a ship whose purpose it to transport gas guzzling cars half way around the planet. You just have to laugh.

Hummmm ... if it can transport cars ... it can transport other things.

One of the largest marine engines I ever saw was a 3 cylinder Izuzu diesil for a tanker. 150 RPM was flat out screaming. I happen to be 6'6" and could stand or lay down inside the combustion chamber with the piston at TDC with room to spare.

The amount of fuel atomized on each stroke per cylinder would have been enough to fuel one of those gasoline guzzlers as you say, for several months.

For a company such as described in that article replacing 60 ships probably with similar powerplants would be a significant savings.
