Eduardo Barreiros and the Recovery of Spain

This chapter describes the transformation of the cars to diesel at low cost by Eduardo. In Castellón, Eduardo had two trucks that used normal petrol. At a permanently fixed price of 6.25 pesetas a liter, their use was expensive. Petrol, too, was rationed and hard to come by, even for those working on original projects, as Eduardo was. Eduardo, who knew the world of motors so well, partly because of his experience in the civil war, believed that engines made by the manufacturer Krupp would survive the challenge, and also bought a new injection pump from his friends at Robert Bosch in Corunna. In Germany, Bosch had been the pioneer of injection pumps for use in motors as used by Daimler Benz in the 1930s.
