Somewhere on the internet, the numbers are wrong.confused smiley

41 million btu., is 1224 boiler HP.

Wikipedia is indicating 10 million btu. per hour, which is still a lot.
And this page is indicating 3 Megawatts of heat
The turbine they used is in the 326 hp.

Im going to support Scott on this one. Had I believed there was such an actual thermal loss, I would be going about corn burner is cheaper to run.
without those numbers there huge... I believe unpracticable smiling smiley

Perhaps too much of the energy produced was swallowed up in forcing water/steam through 3 kilometers of tubing! I think the burner side was better engineered than the steam generator pipery.

It would help if we knew more about the turbines used. Generally speaking, turbines are "one speed" devices, but the car velocity was always changing....so we know they were often off the design rpm. Heck, assuming they designed the vehicle for higher speeds, they might never have come all that close to optimum rpm.
