modification (FAQ. #7) that use #2 petroleum based diesel. It is produced from used cooking oil - w/fresh oil option;  peanut, canola or soybean (P.C.S.).  BioDiesel burns 85% cleaner than petroleum based-diesel, and the byproduct from its production are biodegradable soap. Adam's House's supplies all of it's own BioDiesel for it's operations.

Project Cost: $15,000 - These costs cover stocking inventory, training and equipment cost.

B.  EVANS: Waterless Coolant Technology; sea level, zero pressure it starts to boil at 375 degrees. EVANS Coolant is a new technology into itself, with no coolant system maintenance.  It has nothing in common, nor does it share any of the attributes of anti-freeze water based coolants.  Diesel truck over the road operators report an up to 8% mileage increase, with the EVANS coolant, and it has an million mile service life.  In internal combustion engines Heat makes horsepower, which means improved engine efficiencies.  Performance enthusiasts really appreciate the benefits of the EVANS product.  EVANS is environmentally safe, and if it spills on the garage floor and the cat licks it, it will not kill or make it sick.  EVANS is used straight in the cooling system.  Absolutely, NO WATER, NO WATER, NO WATER!
Project Cost: $5,250

Adam's House Of Hope appreciates your interest in these projects for our youth.  There is also a provision for the RoadRunners to work on each others cars with very little out of pocket expense.  Project #03 has dynamics built into it that brings a resource stream that will cover those youths projects.  The end result is they learn, they apply what they have learned, and build unique but functional skill sets for adulthood.
