Abstract
Vehicles typically reject about 70% of the chemical energy contained in their fuel as waste heat through the exhaust. Capturing a portion of this energy and sending it through a bottoming heat engine, which may be solid state or based on a thermodynamic cycle with a working fluid, will allow more of the fuel
