Coming soon. I am converting a Lister CS Diesel to WVO
Here it is!
Me about to pop the Cherry!
My buddy Hanan along for the laughs!
I like to get naked when I uncrate!
This is the inside of the brand new exhaust baffle. I think that is a protective layer of rust from the Indian factory!

See 2 different 15 second videos of me generating electricity to power a huge 220v air conditioner from the Listroid, while running SVO (straight Vegetable Oil)
The project is far from finished, but this was an important proof of concept milestone.
I ran this large, 220v beast, along with a 500 watt light bulb, with tons of power to spare. I switched from diesel to straight Soy oil, and after a little while, when the fuel in the lines and filter were burned off, the pleasant smell of French fries filled the air. I am thinking however, it would be more effective to put the air conditioner in the house rather than try to cool down the drive way :)
More to come.....
