Default TDI Submarine

While doing a search for a suitable propane tank for my new propane injection system on the TDI this turned up, I thought you all might find it amusing, there is a group of nuts out there making submarines with industrial propane tanks. Put a TDI motor on it and sell it to Iraq. Anybody see Slim Pickens in 1941 (the movie).

Afghanistan had a major order in, but the supplier explained to them that they are land locked.

Valois, I assume you're going to propane injection for more power. If you're trying to increase mileage forget it. Diesel consumption will go down, but overall fuel consumption will stay the same. I don't know where your nozzle(and corresponding press drop) is, but I would suggest putting it right after the intercooler. This way, you'll cool the air more and get a denser charge.

Captain Nemo here, somewhere off the French Coast. I am studying the effects of extended dives on stale air. I am lightheaded at the moment and my unworthy mate, Mr. Smith is lying in a drunken stupor. 47 days without the benefit of fresh oxygen and rudimentary hygenic products is taking it's toll, and I find myself intolerant of Smith's little indiscretions, and total lack of commitment to learning. We had a terrible spat following our daily ration of spam and saltines, and unbeknowst to me Smith sought solice in a bottle of cheap scotch that he had hidden in his bedding. Damn that man! The stench is overpowering, I am going to have to surface! Hopefully this will not blow my cover, I have had my share of run ins with the Gendarmes before: Captain Nemo signing off.

Mickey, I figured you would post eventually. I doubt there are many more that get it. As far as being subtle, it's a French thing.

Captains log: Well we managed to avoid the local authorities, Smith has sobered up somewhat, and the sub is certainly more palatable given the infusion of fresh air! I have accepted a top secret mission from the Association of Slovakian Scientists (ASS)to monitor western nations! I need to compile hard evidence that can be taken to the ASS, that "proves" the nefarious nature of the American Environmental Agency and how it along with The Highway Safety Administration conspired to enact legislation which prohibited importation of the Yugo, and ultimately led to the destablization of Yugoslavia and by association the entire Eastern Bloc, Warsaw Pact, and Soviet Union. We are well aware that the Americans actively persued a campaign of deception, releasing incredulous fabrications concerning this state of the art automobile. Stories of engines falling onto the pavement at stoplights, and wheels falling off! Who would think the public would believe this tripe! It is apparent that they will go to any length to maintain their appearance of technological superiority. "SMITH you idiot, set a course for the American coast, and be sure you get the coordinates right this time! I do not want to end up in Iceland again!
Onward to learning! Nemo out.
