During the trip from France to Hamble Point, Adrian suffered engine failure due to contaminated diesel. He decided to redesign the fuel system to ensure that this coul not happen again. He installed two heavy duty fuel filters in series, with fuel from the tanks passing into a day tank before reaching the engine. Making sure that the engine received clean fuel was very important because the engine would only be used to charge the batteries and to provide power in emergency conditions when failure could prove disasterous.
