How Snowmobiles Work
Did you know that most snowmobiles are powered by either a 2-stroke or a 4-stroke internal combustion engine? I didn’t know a whole lot about the workings of snowmobiles until I purchased one last winter. Similarly to any car or boat, my snowmobile needs maintenance and oil changes.
Recently, at McGill University, a battery-powered electrochemical snowmobile has been developed. Apparently, those same engineers from McGill University in Quebec, are currently attempting to create a hybrid snowmobile. Until that happens and hits an affordable price, however, I’m going to keep on stocking up on snowmobile oil.
