Tired of hearing them? Not baseball or golf, but ICE — we feed ICEs natural gas, gasoline, diesel, fuel oil or biodiesel. It’s the internal combustion engine! Our modern ICE, developed in the 1870s, is used in cars, planes, boats (four-stroke). Leaf blowers (grrr!), some lawn mowers, string trimmers, chain saws, pressure washers, snowmobiles, jet skis, outboard motors, mopeds, yak yaks, and some motorcycles use two-stroke engines.
