nice, i like how you drew the rest. i would just like to point out that it will be very hard to fuel. it has a meter simular to mine and i have never gotten mine right.

"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

you know you are not an engineer if you have to remind yourself "left loosy righty tighty"

His meter is identical to mine, and I have never had a misfire. The keys are fluid volume measurements, an accurate pressure gauge, NO pressure loss when disconnecting the air source, and an air injection system that evacuates the propane from the meter, rather than pushes it back into the meter. The last one is the largest problem on your hybrid, hi.

Hey,

Silly idea maybe, but why not inject the air through the meter pipe? That should flush out all the fuel.

Regards

Isn't that what SpudBlaster15 just said? Maybe I am wrong.

Ok, I understood it a little differently, but we all agree in the idea ;)
