A website posted our article about the solar thermal car. Maybe this information will help people understand what we are doing.

Just posted our most recent trip video. This takes place after returning to La Paz Mexico after visiting Canada and our friends and family there.

Reptile zoo, vegetarian dinner,
Solar model for the University workshop and building successful sun tracking for the solar car.

Solar thermal powered car video part 17

In this video I get my high temperature sensing K thermocouple to work. I test it up to 200c to create a calibration equation.

In this video, after an interview at the university Candice left me a surprise in the fridge, explaining solar thermal power to my math class, Baja 500 off road race party, Candice counts in Spanish after our private Spanish class, showering from a bucket because the show head was electrocuting me, cool apple bird Candice got from her students, we got a fan and home phone,

Engineering work: building a solar distiller to turn ocean water into drinking water, homemade water pump for less then $1, oil thermocline test, storage tubes for my engineering drawings, building solar thermal model that rotates around the pipe, insulating solar thermal receiver tube with a glass wine bottle and stale air,

Video 18 of the solar thermal powered car.

In the video I create a mirror using Krylon looking
Glass spray paint. It created a great mirror finish that will be tested on plexiglass next.

Around the world Adventure video 34

In this video we host motorcyclists from Montreal and Tokyo and a tropical storm with serious flooding in the streets.

We had such a great experience hosting that we hope to host travelers much more in the future.

The motorcyclist riders i hosted last weekend were riding on a mint 1979 CB750 and a DR200. I suggested a 20w 50 motorcycle oil because of the heat. We found out while filling the bike that the oil had a definite blue color. This is new to me and at first I thought we got coolant or something because our spanish is not that good. It says oil,
Lubricant, 4 stroke motorcycle on the bottle.

Does anyone know anything about this blue oil??

In this video
Chasing a moose off the road, cold mountain river swims, trying to cross a rushing river, camping in the middle of nowhere

In this video I explain how all the pasts of the solar thermal car work together to power the wheels and propel the car.

Please provide feedback if something doesn't look like it will function properly. Also let me know if you want more information on the design.
