What engine has a power stroke every revolution?

A: Only two stroke engines have a power stroke...

Only two stroke engines have a power stroke once every revolution of the crankshaft. There is no vehicle that I know of or an engine in a car or truck that is not a four stroke gas or diesel engine. This means they have a power stroke every two revolutions of the crankshaft.
