The best of both worlds
The next power source? Use a couple of these as electric generators?

It's small and cute, but...
How is it cooled, as most internal combustion engines waste 1/3rd or more of their fuel as heat. Secondly, is it lubricated somehow? and if it is does it smoke? Worn propane engines can be just as stinky as gasoline. I'd assume that you could use some of the waste heat to run a Peltier junction for additional power. Still all that heat, moisture and vibration. Yes Wankels do vibrate a little.
I like fuel cells better.
