In this video we demonstrate our successful trial using 4 and 6 bricks as the source of weight to create the pressure to fuel our converted two stroke engine/generator to run on biogas made from kitchen wastes. We also experiment with other ways of introducing lubrication oil into the engine. We are pleased to report that a weight of about 24 kilograms (about what an airplane allows you to carry in your luggage, so think a suitcase worth of weight) is enough to keep the generator running. Thus there is no need for any kind of pump or compressor such as we showed in the last video. That simplifies things a lot and makes home biogas electric generation more and more affordable and useful.
