For gasoline fuel, the perfect air/fuel mixture is approximately 14.7 times the mass of air to fuel. Any mixture less than 14.7 to 1 is considered to be a rich mixture, any more than 14.7 to 1 is a lean mixture - given perfect (ideal) "test" fuel (gasoline consisting of solely n-heptane and iso-octane). Simply put, the fuel/air mixture explodes inside the cylinder, driving the piston down, thus turning the crankshaft, which drives the transmission, thus driving the drive wheels.

not true the perfect air fuel mixture is 16.9

How fuel is processed in the engine in order to make the car operate?

A piston moves up and down inside the combustion chamber. In a four stroke engine when the piston is moving down it is drawing air and fuel into the combustion chamber. on its way back up it compresses the fuel then when it hits top dead center the spark plug sparks and causes an explosion which pushes the piston down, repeating the cycle.

What type of engine is needed for a car to operate?

Most cars use an internal combustion engine or variance thereof to operate. An internal combustion engine works by using combustible fuel, such as fossil fuels, and combining this with a fuel oxidizer. The combination of the two creates high pressure and high temperatures to move different parts of the engine (pistons, turbine blades etc).
