    I hope Chad is paying tax on his carbon neutral lifestyle. If he is selling said carbon neutral fuel. Which would be an absolute gigantic no no in the states! Damnit he actually has one of the top 5 coolest so that Actually negates all taxes and he is entitled to a $1000 tax return for every year he has had the hat and the car and has not claimed it on his federal taxes.

    Fun fact. These old mercs you can push start even if it is a auto. Just go over like 70kmh and it will work. Don't actually know if exactly this merc works but if the gearbox have not been changed, it should work.

    What you said about the world running at different times is very true.
    I remember my dad saying how great the Renault Clio Williams was (which was THE best Renault car at the time) with its 2.0L engine that had an output of 145hp... while Honda was already making 170hp with its 1.6L.

    Sad to say this guys gunna get his stuff shut down. Big coal doesn’t like people showing how to be more eco friendly than EV
    And petroleum doesn’t like the idea of recycling (unless you pay them for their recycled fuel at a premium)

    since im almost positive no one commented to you guys i believe the cigarette with those ash trays is supposed to be held left handed in the right drive car since you can still reach over not to far and ash it while keeping your right hand on the wheel and since your city driving while smoking if you dont bang the gear in it wont ash on the shifter while you hold it

    I wish you would have done a compound turbo setup on this car. A small inner turbo would have drastically improved your acceleration at low engine speeds. These cars are still common taxi cabs in parts of the world (like Africa) because they are diesel and fairly comfortable. The OM617 engine is exceptionally reliable and can be fixed with zip ties or baling wire most of the time.
