Amalfitana road trip: along the amalfi coast by car

Along the amalfi coast runs the amalfitana, officially called strada statale 163 amalfitana (SS 163). A road trip on one of the most exciting roads in italy is probably on some people’s bucket list.

Lpg-autogas

From 2006 to 2015, the trend seemed to be on the rise, but has slowed down again in 2020. Whether this is due to the increase in electric vehicles? Or do owners shy away from the supposedly high costs?? Our guide provides information!

Solar vehicle

Solar vehicles receive most of their propulsion energy directly from the sun. They are equipped with solar cells on the surface that convert the sun’s energy on the vehicle into electricity. as electromobiles, they often also carry an energy storage device (usually accumulators) to remain roadworthy even in poor light conditions or cloud cover, at least for a limited time. Electric vehicles that draw their electrical energy exclusively from a stationary photovoltaic system where they charge their energy storage devices do not count as solar vehicles, even if the energy they charge is purely solar; such as z.B. Twike or cityel. These vehicles are grid-connected electromobiles.

With optimum solar irradiation, the high-performance solar cells of the experimental vehicles can provide up to 2.25 kw (nuna2 NL) of electrical power (max. irradiation *area*efficiency compare fossil car with ca. 35-200 kw). solar cars are experimental vehicles for economical automobiles and light weight construction, (see light vehicle and low energy vehicle).

Machines

Unold breadmaker

the unold breadmaker "backmeister edel 68456" is narrowly beaten by the test winner. This is mainly due to the not quite perfect baking result. The machine scores with a very noble stainless steel design, easy operation and the best coating of the baking pan in comparison.

Unold backmeister noble – top workmanship and design

The name "backmeister edel" really does come to mind with the unold breadmaker. We find the design very chic. Stainless steel comes not only with the basic device, but almost for use everywhere outside – even with the lid, handle and switches.
