    If you're saying can it run so long as the engine is provided with oxygen, such as from an onboard storage tank or something similar... kinda like a scuba tank, lol... then sure, why not? As long as you can maintain the correct air/fuel ratio, generally around 14.7:1 air to fuel.

    In fact, in a sense, that's exactly what NOS systems do, they're basically liguid oxygen under extreme pressure that, when introduced into the engine, oversaturate it's intake mixture with more oxygen, therefore allowing... or more accurately, requiring it to also be fed more fuel.

    If you're asking can an engine just run in a vacuum... no.
