The project is now completed and there shouldn’t be any complains if we call it successful. We took a trip in to Classic Car week in Rättvik yesterday. We got lots of positive response and we’re very thankful and happy for that, because it’s been a very tough and long journey. We took a walk on a car parking with lots of American cars, when we suddenly met some friends to Roger – the guy with the wood powered shower. One of them was an old colleague to Martin from his military service. Sweden is small some times…
We stopped at a news agency and bought today’s paper. The main news was about three lunatics that had driven around Sweden with a wood powered car.
We did a serious control of the car and the system when we came home. Read more about it in “Technical evaluation”. The result was good and it seems like the engine runs without problems on wood gas. Martin has noted the wood consumption during the trip and I have now calculated it to be 12,26 litres/10 km. The expected consumption was 13 litres/10 km.
Martin and Micke left for Stockholm later this afternoon. It became quite lonely and boring without them, because we have been living so close together for the last three weeks. Well, it was quite nice to have a night without having them snoring anyway. Just before they left, we took a group photo behind the car in the garage – the same place, where we six months ago burnt the first arc-welding pins.
Martin and Micke start their work 7 a clock on Monday. Micke said that he would try not to work long days for a time. I quit my job just before the trip and I’m going to rest for a while until it’s time for a new exciting job or project.
There is still many experiences and evaluations to do from the trip and these will be presented on the website later.
