Here in the UK there is a childrens TV program called Blue Peter which incidentally coined the phrase "Here's one I made earlier"..Anyway a couple of months ago I caught a snippet of  a demonstration of a minature gas[I think]turbine that was bolted on the back of a skateboard...It was no bigger than an alternator on a Quantum. The Co. was based here in the UK and I'll try and find out more about it...
A weakness in my Quantum TD was the snaking hose that leads from the back of the water pump up to the metal pipe going to the heater..any way it rubs against the dip stick bracket wearing through...so I replaced the mid section with a bike saddle stem which conveniently has a built in reducer for the two diff hose end sizes that this pipe has :oD
