Wankle Engine ()

The Wankel engine had trouble meeting emissions limits, because the design often leaves behind a lot of unburned fuel, which then gets shed into the exhaust stream. Plus, it's not a fuel-efficient engine. Between the two, it just didn't make sense. People apparently keep working on fixing these problems...but it seems no one has conquered them.
