Puerto trikes junk old en­gines

Palawan News - - ENVIRONMENT -

Sergey Kan­dau­rov - It seems like elec­tri­cal en­gine would fit tri­cy­cle the best way; 1. Tri­cy­cles are light­weight, do not go fast and need high torque at low speeds - ex­actly where elec­tri­cal en­gines are best in. 2. Tri­cy­cles do not travel on long dis­tances (over 50km) - so the range be­tween recharges is not a prob­lem. 50km would not even re­quire a lot of bat­ter­ies (com­pare to 400+ km for much heav­ier Tesla car). 3. Tri­cy­cles spend a lot of time wait­ing - ideal for recharges 4. It's re­ally en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly (if old bat­ter­ies are prop­erly dis­posed). 5. It is cheaper then Princesa Tower. Alan Brown - I re­mem­ber when I 1st got here there was a sim­i­lar pro­gram to con­vert the stink­ing 2 strokes to LP Gas (Ga­sul). The prob­lem was that they only changed the fuel & made no al­lowance for the fact that 2 cy­cle en­gines mix the oil with the gas & lu­bri­cate the mov­ing parts be­fore burn­ing it in the cylin­der.
