The fuel and air is pre mixed in the chamber. there is a constant spark in the barrel close to the chamber. as the mix is coming out of the chamber it ignites. could this work?

That is actually how one of the first hybrids worked, posted on the old old Spudtech forums. It would work, but it would most likely be less efficient than a standard hybrid.
