    That was the first thing I tried, I've even removed and opened up the ECU to see if there are any visually blown components.

    I've since learnt the lesson of high impedance equipment as you can...

    Hi Jankovig,

    DV,

    Before you give up completely, and I do know how you feel (just read my thread), try going through RadGenH2O's channel on youtube. He got good results using 3.5 LPM at a 40 amp draw with just...

    I fixed the misfire issue this morning by putting a single diode between the AC live from the outlet and the coil. Now it fires every time, even at high frequency.

    I suppose that the oil, as well as providing less friction, also increases the air pressure seal around the pellet.

    I do have a PSI gauge from an air compressor, that might be a good avenue!

    What is the ratio of CO2 produced vs. CO2 consumed in production per gallon of algae oil? It would be great if mainstream use of this fuel could fix our current pollution levels whilst...

    Is it:

    A) To reduce the cost of fuel production and hence each mile they drive.

    Or:

    B) To...
