I like the internal combustion engine. It is very reliable and powerful and runs on relatively cheap and abundant fuel.

You and me, both. It's hard to conceive of a power source that, within a closed system, is as cheap, reliable and non-polluting as the internal combustion engine.

Even though the Iowa farmers may not like to hear it, ethyl alcohol blended in gasoline is an net power loser.
