The calculated isochores for type II inclusions using the 'isochore' program (Bakker, 1997; Bakker & Brown, 2003) indicate a pressure range between 0.591kbar and 2.996kbar.
The possibility of achievement an isochore combustion (constant-volume combustion) is the main feature of this engine.

The isochores for representative fluid inclusions, computed using Bakker's (1999) method, based on the adaptation of Bowers and Helgeson's (1983) equation of state, compared with the geothermobarometric data and mineral assemblages in the host rock, indicate lower pressure- temperature conditions for their trapping in accordance with the retrograde P-T evolution found in the MCT zone of Garhwal Himalaya (Sachan et al., 2001).
As the critical point shifts, so do the isochores; therefore, the fluids that are exsolving off the magma will be volumetrically larger than in the pure water system, thereby increasing the explosivity of the eruption.
