The Green Steam Engine

A friend of ours turned us on to a simple and easy to build steam engine. Called the Green Steam Engine, it's simple and novel design appealed to our DIY approach. We can burn veggie oil in a turk burner to produce the steam, or even boil water on a wood stove. The engine can then turn one of our axial flux permanent magnet alternators to charge our battery bank. Clean, quiet, and sustainable.

Very interesting stuff - I like it very much.
Have you got some performance data already ?

This looks like a more economical idea that a Honda $10,000 furnace or a Stirling engine. I just hope some manufacture wants to take a flier on it.
