Small Engines for Economic Development (SEED) chose as their project the challenge of developing and selling a fuel efficient micro-diesel engine pump-set that could eventually be run on bio-fuel. Four graduate students set out for a full summer in Bangladesh, Ethiopia and India to test the micro-diesel concept and find out exactly what their customers needed, wanted and could realistically afford.
