Bio-Diesel Royal Enfield Project – 1700 miles on 10 gallons?

Best of the Web, In the News, Random Notes

The president of the Royal Enfield Association and frequent poster on our community forum Geoff Baker has developed a really fascinating project. Geoff has built a water injected high mileage diesel engine for his Royal Enfield motorcycle.  To help raise awareness of fuel economy and being “green” he intends to ride from Nogales Mexico to Vancouver Canada (a distance in excess of 1,700 miles) using only 10 gallons of recycled vegetable oil “Bio-Diesel”. Sound crazy doesn’t it? I can assure you Geoff is not crazy.  Geoff started with a Military model Royal Enfield and has adapted all sorts of devices from common materials to finish his project on a very slim budget.

A visit to his website will fill you in on all of the details of this great experiment
