Thanks to adrian for including us in his article in the sunday observer ! Its great to get coverage.

I have done a fair bit of work neatening the front end of the car (in the pouring rain), we want her to look her best for the car show this weekend. The play in the driveshaft has turned out to be the diff, we are ignoring it for now.

We plan to use waste vegetable oil to power the car once our carriers license arrives, before adding it to the car the oil will need to be filtered. For the Europe trip this will all happen on the move. The filter and housing arrived and initial tests for the boot mounted system are looking good. We think we can get an acceptable filter speed for waste vegetable oil using gravity alone (no pump).
