Aw, I ferget.

Well, I drive a Caravan, with a PT6-114A. It moves pretty well,
and I use the tank sumpings in my 91 Jetta NA, or my 03 Jetta TDI.
Oh, the afterburner. A 100 lb propane tank, with liquid
propane injection just after the turbo, and before the
ignitor. The ignitor module doubles as an anti-theft device.
The Jetta does move, when you kick in the liquid propane
