Independent third-party, peer-reviewed studies show biodiesel has the highest energy balance of ANY fuel. A prominent USDA/DOE study shows for every unit of fossil fuel used to make biodiesel, 3.2 units of energy are gained in energy output. That's a 320% increase and includes soybean planting, harvesting, fuel production and transportation.



Now thats talking out my ass. Look it up longride if you dare..

Default Get em while they're hot

Tier II emissions regs come online in 2007 and currently no diesel available in the US will be able to meet these standards.

How can that be?! I thought Illinois was a blue state?! You said blue states were the BEST, tip-top and king sh!t! And we all know everything is easily separated between red states and blue states. You told us this many times!



How can this be?!



You dumb@ss...

Look, more wasted space by KPaul! Good job, buddy!



I like how you stated biodiesel sells above regular diesel but stated no statistics. Very convincing! Super job!

Which issues? I will need a list. Preferably in order of KPaul importance. After each item I will need a lengthy explanation with random reference to studies and questionable statistics on how this affects KPaul and the KPaul lifestyle.



Also, if you could fit in references to your sportsbike, fighting forest fires and your engineering skills, that too would be super helpful.

If they double the top speed and quadruple the distance between refueling I'd consider buying one, but 50 mph, I could get 100 mpg on a scooter and do that.

Europe has to levy high taxes on fuel to keep demand down. Lacking oil reserves, they must concern themselves with unfavorable balance of payment accounts. We, however, go our merry way running up huge deficits with ever increasing debt service. But, as Bushie sez: wot, me worry!

By that map, per capita, Kansas is kicking WA's ass in biodiesel availibility. But what kind of twit would boast about the availibility of fry oil at a service station? No sane person cares about these things.



Say, kpaul, post that link again to that Comic-Sans-font website by the crazy lady who called herself "Biodiesel Mom," or whatever it was. It was friggin' riotous. Come on!
