Default Re: Landspeed Record Biodiesel Bike To Be Star At Biodiesel Conf.

Here is a great set of links that talk about biodiesel vs other fuels. As Buz and others have said about hydrogen and electric vehicles the problem is how to generate all of that electricity (nukes, coal, ?).

[i]Just to preempt some questions, I should say that kpaul doesn't have a biodiesel car yet..



We get special deals on Chrysler products (we have family and friends that sell them) and so far we haven't needed to replace our cars yet. We have had 5 Chryslers since 1997 and all have been great. When Chrysler makes a diesel car we like we will buy it.

I was wondering if it smells like "potato potato potato"? I was also wondering if fries came with that? Which leads me to the obvious- will it pop popcorn?



If the motorcycle indusrty would take hold of this we could see a new generation of dual purpose, or off road enjoyment. Just think of how environmentally friendly it would be for the tree huggers.

The first bio fuel vehicle is the Patty Wagon in the Spongebob movie. Dual basket fryer under the hood.

Correction- when MB starts installing diesels in Chryslers( will you buy it? ) The 5 cyl turbo is slated for some model soon (just can't remember- maybe the new Jeep Wrangler replacement) and MB puts diesels in the Sprinter already.

no, the little repair kit you attach to your belt with little screws, a screw driver and a cleaning cloth.
