Default Water vapor isn't...

...the only byproduct. Apparently an incredible amount of heat is released in the process of producing energy from hydrogen.



Don't let the "Global warming will kill us all!!!" alarmists hear about that.

Default Re: Disclaimer: Not coming to KP/SBB's defense!

You hit that nail on the head. There are two types of people; those that run their mouth about something, and those that actually do something. If kpaul actually produced and sold as much biodeisel with the same amount of time he ran his mouth about it, I guess he'd be one rich MF'er. But as of now, it's all talk. Of course, just as with motorcycles, he is 100% correct with his choice, and there is no alternative. Just ask him. He'll tell you. Better yet, don't ask.

Default Re: I thought you would never ask

You will never get an answer to your questions, because kpaul is a liar, and doesn't own such a vehicle. he's talking out his ass again, and simply can't shut up at this point. It's called diarrhea of the mouth. That's all he REALLY has ever had.

You might also like to point out that the VW runs on a blend of no more than 5% bio. The rest of the mix will come from BIG OIL!!!

When he said he walked the walk I though he went out and bought a VW diesel. Guess he punked out again...huh?



A buddy of mine just bought a new Jetta Wagon with the TDI, he figures he gets around 50 or so on regular diesel. Pretty nice looking car.

Ah, what the hell. Let's go back to horses and buggys. If you want to go long distances take a train or a steam ship, the rest of the time it's bicycles or horses.



Then we could complain about horse poop and flys everywhere.

What a sad and pathetic little ego you have.



Shouldn't you be in the gym?



Or fighting forest fires?



Or racing around in your super-duper, bestest bike in the whole world?



Or writing more drivel about the death of the v-twin?



Or Googling more political crap?



Or looking into more ways to work in that you're an engineer into every day conversation?



Please! Please! We just need to hear more about YOU!



Have you saved any kittens? Have delivered any babies? Fought sea monsters? When is the KPual infomercial on motivation speaking coming out?!



Is there a magazine I can subscribe to?!



How about a fan club?



Please send me a door sized poster of your dumb @ss as soon as possible!



CanÂ’t wait to hear more crap,

Your Biggest Fan

imho emisions will only get you so far, it is time to apply some effeciancy to the quotient. while a fuel cell sounds great, it is the pinacle of inefiecency, that and it's only clean @ the cunsumtion stage, production and transport sucks as bad as gasoline.

For a much lower infastructure cost and the aded benifit of scrubing co2 out of the atmosphere (thats what hapens when you grow algea, soy or rapeseed) you can have biodiesel. And we all get to keep our noisy fast vehicles.

fuel cells are nothing more than a short sighted enviromental wet dream, no diferent than a 100% electric vehicle. even range is about the same, the only advantage I can see is the impatient gas and go, no waiting for a charge. this leopard's spots are looking familiar..

Default Where do you live?

I am guessing it's a Red State?

Do a search on Google "Biodiesel + Seattle"

Default Study only applies to methanol

You didn't read the government sponsered studies did you? Plus an ecology professor won't have the last word the market will.. Right now biodiesel is selling above regular diesel ...
