Not the most efficient, but used in many different applications. Gen Sets, (200kWe) and Mechanical drive. Seen pictures of Spartan unit in a crawler tractor, Heavy Highway truck and a farm tractor! (International Harvester.) About 18% efficient, simple cycle, a neat little unit to play with. Lots were used as hospital emergency back up power units, as they could be blackstarted and put on-line within seconds.
Modern recips kill the Spartan for fuel consumption, but if you need 200 kW in a small package, they're tough to beat.

I'll post some pictures as I dig them up.

Pictures as promised;
