How many cylinders do you own?
« on: February 26, 2016, 05:11:49 AM »
I've done this on other forums and it always seems to be fun and interesting...

How many cylinders do you own? As in, add up the cylinders from every combustion engine you own... this may include cars, trucks, RVs, motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, dirt bikes, mopeds, lawn mowers, snow blowers, generators, gas golf carts, log splitters, chainsaws, heavy equipment, etc etc....

I'll start....

Truck - 8
Car - 5 
SUV 1 - 6
SUV 2 - 4
Generator - 1
Snow Blower - 1
Lawn Mower - 1
Chain Saw - 1

TOTAL - 27 cylinders

If you have to present a problem like this, I don't think you are operating on all your cylinders !!!!

BC, you need more cylinders. ;D

I've done this exercise before, but it's been a while.  A radio host I used to listen to refers to it as your "cylinder index".  Let's see:

RV:  6 + 3 (almost forgot to count the generator)
"Modern" cars:  22
"Vintage" cars:  12
Lawn mower and string trimmers:  3
Snow blower:  1
Boats:  10
Old Vespa: 1
Model Aircraft engines:  5ish  (the counting of model engines is hotly debated, but I figure if it burns alcohol & nitromethane, count it)

Total:  63
Left out a few items that I own jointly with my brothers, but didn't figure I should count fractional cylinders.

Edit:  Forgot the snow blower first time through.

Motor home 8, Generator is 1 or 2 (not sure) Car is 4,  But pill bottles are also cylinders, as are spray cans and food cans and oatmeal boxes and cups and I have long since lost count of all of those.  Even my Deep fryer is a cylinder.  Coffee cans (Some of them) Wyler's drink mix containers.  Oh, and rolls of Toilet paper (Also paper towels) So as you can see the count is very large indeed.
Nothing adds excitement like something that is none of your business

Daily driver SUV: 6
Tow vehicle SUV: 8
Classic car: 8
Lawn Tractor: 1
Push mower: 1
Snowblower: 1
Home generator: 1

So a total of 26 for me.  My current power washer and weed whacker are electric, those come and go.

BC, Did you intend for this to be just combustion cylinders which burns gas or diesel fuel or any cylinders?

Gee, I'm nowhere close to most in this thread:
Tow vehicle: 10
SUV: 6
Car: 4

Got rid of the snow blower, tiller, trimmer, mower/tractor, chain saw etc. years ago and with great relish.
Never owned a boat.
Sold the airplane (4 cylinders) a few years back. That one I do miss on occasion, but they're easy to rent.

OP did mention "cylinders from every combustion engine you own". Didn't say they had to be in operational condition.
I'm thinking pill bottles and hydraulic cylinders don't count.
But I could be wrong.

When this comes up among my friends we only count combustion engines and only the ones that are capable of running. that why I didnt count spare engine blocks or ones waiting for rebuild....Our claim is that you have to have one cylinder for each year of your life..mine are so many I have to take out a loan just to replace the batteries in them and this is one of the reasons I could never full time.

Yes it was intended to be cylinders in a combustion engine but if people want to count up their hydraulics as a side note that's cool too!

Wow, then don't forget your master brake cylinder and the cylinders for each brake.

Model Aircraft engines:  5ish  (the counting of model engines is hotly debated, but I figure if it burns alcohol & nitromethane, count it)


I'd say those are acceptable..... a friend of mine has a few remote control race cars that run on alcohol/nitro..... they are so insanely fast!

Ok...

RV & gen           8+1
VW                    4
TW200              1
outboard           1
rider mower       1
push mower      1
weed whacker    1
==============
                         17


Guess I'm still a teenager. :-/


I used to have more, but a year and a half layoff then moving across country for a new job... I got rid of a lot of things.


Edit: just a thought... how many cylinders do you have with you when you get to camp?

What is your camp:home ratio.
Mine is usually 15:17 so I'm at 88% when I hit the park.
