A bunch. The previous barrel was only 3 feet, for testing it mainly. I've had this done for a while, just never posted it.

I'm not going to answer your question. Don't think because you have whatever number of posts that people are going to spoon feed you.

And don't think beacuse of your huge number of posts you can't answer a simple question.

@lukemc.Gen-1 is the hybrid fueling system in which say 3 times the ammount of fuel is injected into the chamber then 3 atmosphers of air,there are a few problems though with this set up as the injected fuel has to be calculated into the ammount of air injected into the chamber.TheGen-2 only has 1 injection of fuel and the water is used to compress the air/fuel into a smaller volume.

Looks great, I hate generation 2 hybrids. :D Generation 1 hybrids work just as well as long as you are not too stupid to properly calculate the meter pressure.

Why so many pressure gauges? You only need one, 2 if you don't want to fill through the meter. I think I see 3.

I have two, one for telling the pressure of the chamber (can be shut off by ball valve) and one for telling the meter pressure.
