CLAIMS

1. A system of operating an external
combustion engine which is operated by a heated
working fluid of the engine, comprising providing a fuel selected' from the group consisting of magnesium, aluminum, magnesium plus aluminum, magnesium-aluminum alloy, magnesium hydride, aluminum hydride and
magnesium aluminum hydride, providing a combustion chamber in association with the engine, burning
said fuel in said combustion chamber and subjecting the working fluid of the engine to the heat generated by the burning fuel in said combustion- chamber.

2. A system of operating an external
combustion engine which is operated by a heated
working fluid of the engine, comprising providing a fuel selected from the group consisting of magnesium, aluminum, magnesium plus aluminum and a magnesium-aluminum alloy, providing a combustion chamber in association with the engine, burning said fuel in said combustion chamber, and subjecting the working fluid of the engine to the heat generated by the burning fuel in said combustion chamber.

3. A system of operating an external
combustion engine which is operated by a heated
working fluid of the engine, comprising providing a magnesium-aluminum fuel, providing a combustion chamber in association with the engine, burning said fuel in said combustion chamber, and subjecting the working fluid of the engine to the heat generated by the burning fuel in said combustion chamber.
