Watched all three videos now. I hope you will let us know the cost of all the required repairs you covered on the last video. I know it's not part of your actual conversion budget goal, but I think the overall cost of getting a vehicle on the road is important to know. It still affects the feasibility of a project.

My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

What pump are you using? Are you going to just power it with a 12v supply or make a controller for it?
