On April 15th, 2003, an Electrical Generator powered with a 5HP ( 160 cm3 ) 4-stroke combustion engine ( a Honda GC160 ) has been tested successfully with the BingoFuel Reactor. The 5HP combustion engine has been fully powered with synthetic gas produced by the BingoFuel Reactor.
The Electrical Generator tested with the BingoFuel Reactor is a Ranger2500 from SDMO ( see below ) :

|Compression Ratio||8.5: 1|
|Fuel Consumption||313 g/kWh (230 g/HPh, 0.51 lb/HPh)|
|Ignition System||Transistorized magneto ignition|
|Ignition Timing||20° B.T.D.C|
|Spark Plug||BPR6ES (NGK)|
|Carburetor||Horizontal type, butterfly valve|
|Air Cleaner||Dry (paper) type|
|Governor||Centifugal mechanical governor|
|Oil Capacity||0.58 lt (0.61 US qt, 0.55 Imp qt)|
|Recommended operating ambient tempature||-15°C to 40°C (5°F to 104°F)|
|Starting System||Recoil starter|
|Stopping System||ignition primary circuit ground|
|Fuel Used||Automotive unleaded gasoline (minimum 86 pump octane)|
|Fuel tank capacity||2.0 lt (0.53 US gal, 0.44 imp gal)|
|P.T.O. Shaft Rotation||Counterclockwise (viewed from P.T.O. side)|

Tests results with the BingoFuel Reactor v1.1
Two tests runs have been conducted successfully, in all the cases the 5HP engine has worked without any problem.

Comments from JL Naudin : These tests are very encouraging and confirms fully that the synthetic gas generated by the BingoFuel Reactor can be used as fuel for a common combustion engine...
