CNG Dodge Caravan

Chrysler Corp. sold versions of the 1995 Dodge Caravan, Plymouth Voyager, and Caravan cargo minivans that run on compressed natural gas. They are certified as one of the "world's cleanest internal-combustion vehicles" by the state of California, which said the minivans meet its tough standard for ultra-low-emission vehicles (ULEVs). The vehicles store the equivalent of 8.2 gallons of gasoline in their four underside tanks. The range is 160 to 180 miles, and the extra cost is about $5,000 over the regular vehicle price.

In 1992, Dodge introduced a full-sized van that ran on compressed natural gas. Two years later, in 1994, Chrysler’s compressed natural gas (CNG) minivan was first brought out; all three short-wheelbase minivans could be purchased with a CNG 3.3 L OHV SMPI V-6 engine and 41TE electronically controlled four-speed overdrive transaxle. Operating cost with CNG was less than with gasoline, and emissions were far lower as well. The engine and fuel system were developed by Chrysler engineers and the vehicles were assembled by Chrysler. Warranty coverage on the vehicle and fuel system was the same as on gasoline engine vehicles.

Fuel economy with CNG is roughly equivalent to that provided by gasoline on a energy content basis. Power is reduced approximately 15% from gasoline-fuel levels because CNG displaces more air in the cylinders, reducing volumetric efficiency.

The CNG fuel injection system used sequential multi-point injection (SMPI), a major step forward in responsiveness, performance and emission control compared to aftermarket conversions. Injectors and fuel rails were given a much higher flow capacity than gasoline injectors because of the lower energy content in CNG; the separate electronic injector-driver module was required to operate the high flow injectors. The control system included sensors for both fuel temperature and pressure to provide a correct basis for fuel flow; an oxygen sensor fine-tuned the fuel mixture. A specially formulated three-way catalyst assured extremely low emissions. Test procedures were inadequate to accurately measure the emissions from these vehicles, but they were the lowest emission levels of any vehicles available to the public at the time.

Fuel was stored in four glass and epoxy-wrapped aluminum cylinders. When filled at 3000 psi they held the equivalent of 8.5 gallons of gasoline. Two tanks were under the floor, replacing the gasoline tank. The other tanks took the place normally occupied by the spare tire. The spare was stored inside the vehicle. Fuel was supplied to the engine by pressure in the tanks, rather than by a pump. A regulator at the tank maintained a constant operating pressure. There was no return line from the engine to the tank.

The cylinders were recharged at a CNG refueling station through a quick connect coupling. At a quick-fill station this takes about five minutes. Slow refilling at a fleet garage could be done over night. A home refueling unit was also available. A conventional fuel gauge on the instrument panel sensed the amount of fuel remaining in the tanks by measuring its pressure. Regardless of the refueling system used, no evaporation or loss of fuel occurred.

To maintain durability with CNG, different materials were required for valves, valve stem seals and valve seat inserts.

Additional safety features included both ignition-activated and manual gas shutoff valves, back flow check valves in the refueling circuit, armored stainless steel fuel lines and fuel cylinders that meet rigid Department of Transportation requirements. Valve placement and mounting was designed to avoid damage in a collision.

The CNG minivans ran for a long time, albeit in small quantities each year. The first minivans to be certified as Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles in California, their production was apparently constrained partly by problems with getting sufficient supplies of tanks and other parts. In 1997 and 1998, Chrysler dropped entirely out of CNG vehicle production.

Root Beer

Well I found way to make Root Beer in a 2 liter bottle and its not to bad. Give it a try if you want and let me know what you think of it.

"Root Beer in a bootle”

Things you need:
clean 2 liter plastic soft drink bottle with cap
funnel
1 cup measuring cup
1/4 tsp measuring spoon
1 Tbl measuring spoon
cane (table) sugar [sucrose] (1 cup)
Zatarain's Root Beer Extract (1 tablespoon)
powdered baker's yeast (1/4 teaspoon) (Yeast for brewing would certainly work at least as well as baking yeast.)
cold fresh water

1.Using a clean bottle and a dry funnel, add the ingredients in sequence as stated in the steps that follow. First add a level cup of table sugar, (or cane sugar). Adjust the amount to achieve the desired sweetness.
2.Yeast on sugar
Measure out 1/4 teaspoon powdered baker's yeast, and place in the funnel. The yeast should be fresh and active, and any brand that is available will work.
3.Shake well to make sure that the yeast grains are distributed evenly into the sugar.
4.Swirl the sugar/yeast mixture in the bottom in order to make it concave and enable it to catch the extract in the middle.
5.Replace the funnel, and add 1 Tbsp of root beer extract on top of the dry sugar.
Notice how the extract sticks to the sugar. This will help dissolve the extract as seen in the next few steps .
6.Fill the bottle halfway with fresh cool tap water that has only a little chlorine. Pour through the funnel and use this opportunity to rinse extract stuck to the funnel and tablespoon. Swirl to dissolve the ingredients.
7.Fill the bottle to the neck, this time with fresh water, leaving only about an inch (2.54cm) of head space. Securely screw the cap so as to seal the bottle. Invert repeatedly to thoroughly dissolve the contents.
8.Place the sealed bottle at room temperature for about three or four days until the bottle feels hard to a forceful squeeze. Then move it to a cool place (below 65 F (18 C)). Refrigerate overnight to thoroughly chill before serving. Crack the lid of the bottle just a little to release the pressure slowly.

Modding a Geo???

Yeah why not?? Its Like driving a go-cart on the streets and the mods are why cheap or have to be custom made. Ill be into the Turbo setup about $250 to $400 Denpending an if I need to rebuild the Turbo. It Should Push out about 125 hp Which is awsome because the stock motor pushes like 45 hp.

I can't figure out why I would rather mod my Metro than my 2.3 L Mustang powered Street Legal Dune buggy. i dunno

here are some good links for D.I.Y.

Mmmmm Turbo...

So I got a KKK K03 turbo off of ebay for $50 and Im going to put it on my metro

Wednesday, November 29, 2006

So I am going to buy....

A Geo Metro that has a rebuilt engine, is bored .020 over spec, has a 3tech performance head with a 218/350 cam , a Swift GT flywheel/PP/Clutch (lighter and stronger then Geo Parts), a new oil pump, gaskets, and bearings. Its been lowered 3 inchs, has Mk4 swaybars. The idle sounds like half of a built v6. It revs quick and past 3500 rpm it revs so fast and pulls so hard it will make you grin.




Im doing this because the "Sick Little Turdall" Motor is shot . RIP :( :(

This one for famousjay...

Famousjay Wrote "WWJD: What would Jesse do if they did away with queue flexing and wanted previous employees back? Hmm.. I know what Kr5is would do. He'd move back from Denver to work in HT and be happy with us again...
.. But what would Jesse do?"

I make More money here even after paying for my own benefits I only have to drive 15 mins to get to work. I leave early on Fridays and get paided a full 40 hours. I take lunch when I want and for as long as I want. The boss buys us lunch about once a week. One Day I left Sick with 3 hours left in the day and guess what I was paid 40 hours for that week ... Most of the time my boss doesn’t care what I’m doing as long as the work gets done. So when the works over I watch movies, surf anywhere I want (NO I am NOT NOAH), Play on my GP2x, Download music.....

OR

I can go back to D3ntrix and make less money spend 2X as much on gas to get to work, If I leave early on a Friday I do not get paid 40 hours and If I dont hit 40 hours they will use a 4 hour chunk of PTO to make it up. If I’m 7 mins late 3 times I have to be afraid of losing my job. If i leave sick i have to use my PTO in 4 hour chunks. PLUS have the off chance that Queue Flexing could come back.....

The ONLY thing I Really Miss From D3ntrix is My Friends!!!!


So to answer WWJD? I would ......










Rather live on welfare then go back to work for D3ntrix. :)



So has anyone from High tech played Stepmania ? its a clone of DDR that is Open source.

Got the idea from Spin...

Brunnen I dachte hmm warum nicht Pfosten auf Deutsch, nachdem er Pfosten der Drehbeschleunigung gesehen hatte.

And while I am at it here is "how much wood wood a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood" in English after translating into Chinese then English then Chinese then English “How many wood wooden wood? Meat? Meat like fruit tree? The meat possibly pats the wood?

And now in English after translating into Russian then English then french then German then English. "Which quantity tool tension adjuster from wood from tool tension adjuster wood wood, if the smoked wood from wood of the tool tension adjuster of the tool tension adjuster fog"

Nothing much to blog...

Well nothing much to say... I’ve commented on most people’s blogs and do most days.

I hope every one is alive and Kicking at D3ntrix (I do that because I don’t want my blog to show up on Google).

So I came to work in my kilt and my boss laughed because I have told him the story.

I do have to say this office gets way to Quiet at times. Lots of time to think and a lot more typing.

Friday, September 08, 2006

Victor Asked For it....

"Yeah, I just stare at my desk, but it looks like I'm working. I do that for probably another hour after lunch too, I'd say in a given week I probably only do about fifteen minutes of real, actual, work." (Office Space)

Most of last week i had about 4 inbound calls a day, Maybe 10 outbound, and they only last about 3 to 5 mins.

that ladies and gentlemen is my job :)


I would also like to let you know I have played a few playstation games on my GP2x its not the Best EMU of playstation, but playable with out sound at this point.

The Scottish Kilt: A Brief History...

For anyone of Scottish ancestry, the kilt is a symbol of honor for the clan which they belong. First worn by those who lived in the Scottish Highlands, the kilt was a matter of dress that afforded the fighting army with possibly its most useful tool. Prior to 1792 those who wanted to wear the kilt in the Lowlands or Britain, had to join the British army. The reason being that because of the swift and competent movements of the Highland armies, the English were afraid that if they let anyone wear the kilt it would spark the idea of revolution.

The kilt is more than just a covering. It allowed those who wore it to move much more freely, especially in the Highlands of Scotland where the weather can become very damp. With its tight weave of strong wool, it created a barrier between the rain and skin. When the armies of the past were fighting in Scotland, the kilt with its pleat helped protect the soldier much like armor would. When the nights became cold, this garment was easily removed and spread out to create a blanket to keep the person who owned it warm. Lastly, if the army needed to move with a much quicker force, the garment could be easily removed, thus allowing the soldier more freedom of movement.

Today the kilt is the national dress of Scotland and worn by many. The various plaids that one can see from time to time are the colors of the particular clan that the wearer belongs to. It is much shorter than the ones worn by the Highland armies of yore, but still evokes the pride that was carried by those who lived above the land of Scotland.

It's not offical Yet but....

I Spoke with Robin (the guy i interviewed with) and it sounds like it going to happen, I will might meet up with the other Partner Steve Eastland today if he gets back from AK.

Later today My Dentist is going to pull my Wisdom Teeth.

I will let you know how it all goes...

Mean While Its a Woot-off http://www.woot.com today check it out.

Thursday, August 17, 2006

I might have a new job......

My crayon color

You are

Kilts are ok with microsoft...

Bill Hill wears his "business suit kilt"
He admitted that he wears kilts often and has never worn a pair of long pants since he's worked at Microsoft (about 10 years).

WTF... Hey buddy ... why a kilt? ... To work? ... Trying to impress somebody?

I mean ... do you whisper down the tech support line...

"Hey baby ... I can help you ... I'm wearing ... a kilt!"

Saturday was the Scottish Festival at witch I bought a Kilt for a killer deal and decided I would wear it to work.


Every thing was cool until I got back from lunch and Luke said to go Aux 4. He said I needed to go change because my Kilt was Unprofessional... HELLO I live in Payson, I would take an hour and half to change and come back. So I took 4 hours PTO because it’s not worth the gas to go and come back. And if you can’t tell be now I less then like this Job.

The kilt is FORMAL wear, like a suit. If it's considered acceptable to wear it to black tie and other formal occasions, why should wearing it be too CASUAL for work? As for professional wear, the U.S. Marine Corps' tartan is called the "Leatherneck", and there are also U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force tartans. The Air Force has a pipe band and you know they wear the kilt as business attire.

If the kilt follows all dress code rules for ladies skirts, then I should be allowed to wear it. Otherwise, Dentrix is discriminating against Me or any other Kilt wear.

This is discrimination, what’s the difference is between Scottish national dress, African, Middle Eastern, Jewish, etc. Mostly likely they allow Africans, Jewish, and Middle Easterners to wear their garb without comment. What I’ am up against is the perception of the kilt as a costume, so therefore it would be inappropriate for work. The kilt however, is most definitely not a costume, and it can be found in business meetings throughout Scotland and the world.

As someone with strong Scottish heritage, I welcome any man wearing a kilt. I don't believe you have to be Scottish to wear a kilt, any more than you have to be Japanese to wear a Kimono, or a cowboy to wear blue jeans. It’s a tribute to Scottish culture that it’s being adapted, not disrespect. It’s definitely far more comfortable and has some distinct advantages. Kilts are great for walking in, they don't rip out, and they force you into conversations with strangers.

For Example Business casual, something button down (including a polo shirt) goes well with most kilts, along with socks and a decent pair of shoes. For a more professional look, I will go ahead and wear kilt hose, a dress shirt (and depending on the situation, maybe a tie). Obviously, there are some things that won't work for professional dress or even business casual.

Dream job ... well kind of...

I wish i worked here instead of Dentrix

Stop Windows Update from nagging you to restart your computer!

I found this after a lot of Googling, so I'd like to share the solution. Yep, this may not be new or even advanced but it surely helped me...

Anyone who is running Windows XP SP2 know what I'm talking about. That stupid, annoying, most ill-designed dialog box ever invented in the history of the computer science that asks "Updating your computer is almost complete. You must restart your computer for the updates to take effect. Do you want to restart your computer now?"
And there are only two options: Restart Now/Restart Later. "Restart Later" means that this stupid thing will ask you again in 10 minutes. Yes, if you're willing to work for the next 4 hours until lunch before rebooting, this means you'll need to answer this question 24 times. Did I mention that the dialog steals the focus?

Now, to get rid of it:
Start / Run / gpedit.msc / Local Computer Policy / Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Update / Re-prompt for restart with scheduled installations

You can configure how often it will nag you (I re-configured it for 720 minutes, which means I'll be asked twice on a work day), or completely disable it.

Oh, I almost forgot: this setting is only loaded when Windows starts, so a reboot is needed. If that stupid dialog is on your screen now, just stop the "Automatic Updates" service (but keep it as Automatic, so it gets reloaded on the next start) and you won't see it again.

I had to post this

Are you a bad customer?

Monday monday it will be....

Well its monday morning and i forgot my badge so i had to walk around the building and then wait for someone to let me onto the Floor. to top it off you cant get a temp badge until 7:00am but i get here at 6:30. WTF??


Friday, June 23, 2006

I thought ... Well Ahhhhh...

I would start off by sharing link to some of the some of my toys tell me what you think... maybe later ill give reviews.
