Even today there is a news about Bio-Diesel plant in www.greencarcongress.com
"Environmental reasons, political reasons, every reason," said Seattle landscaper Ann Magnano, one of Freeman's customers. "It's about giving farmers the opportunity to keep farming ... helping the planet."
"I'd rather pay American farmers than Saudi kings," said Shoreline resident Jeff Van Horn, who also likes using the cleaner fuel around his kids.
Seattle, Tacoma and Olympia are all using biodiesel for at least some of their public transit and service vehicles.
What is the newest Ford pickup that COULD in fact be used for the biodiesel I'm making? I don't want to get something TOO old.
It's costing me about 50 cents a gallon to make my biodiesel, and unfortunately, I'm making it faster than my Mercedes 300D can use it and I need a bigger vehicle to accomodate it.
He is the fellow that got Willie started on pushing biodiesel.
The star at last week's Philadelphia Auto Show wasn't a sports car or an economy car. It was a sports-economy car — one that combines performance and practicality under one hood.
But as CBS News correspondent Steve Hartman reports in this week's Assignment America, the car that buyers have been waiting decades comes from an unexpected source and runs on soybean bio-diesel fuel to boot.
A car that can go from zero to 60 in four seconds and get more than 50 miles to the gallon would be enough to pique any driver's interest. So who do we have to thank for it. Ford? GM? Toyota? No — just Victor, David, Cheeseborough, Bruce, and Kosi, five kids from the auto shop program at West Philadelphia High School
"As I understand it I need to have my elastomer (in gas tank) removed and the fuel lines changed. I'm getting the detail behind this and then I'll get the mechanic...."
I'll let you know how it goes for him, and for me too, but it probably will be a week or two until we find out.
"a leader" ? Er..... come again. Didn't Honda just have its hiny whipped with the IMA hybrids ? And now they are off with their tail between their legs to mess with diesels.
NEW RULE : Honda must be banned from rewriting any more books particularly on Diesels which are working just fine the way they are now thank you very much.
While a number of bio-feedstock are currently being experimented for biodiesel (and ethanol ) production, algae have emerged as one of the most promising sources especially for biodiesel production, for two main reasons (1) The yields of oil from algae are orders of magnitude higher than those for traditional oilseeds, and (2) Algae can grow in places away from the farmlands & forests, thus minimising the damages caused to the eco- and food chain systems. There is a third interesting reason as well: Algae can be grown in sewages and next to power-plant smokestacks where they digest the pollutants and give us oil!
