I don't see any reason to suggest that it's a hoax. However, like bio-diesel, it depends on waste oil from restaurants. As soon as a significant number of people start using these methods, the price will increase substantially.

Default You gotta be kidding

Why don't we all just eat beans and with a *special* saddle we could run bikes on natural gas ?

Diesels will burn just about anything once up to operating temperature. I am far from an expert on this, but from what I have read, I think you are far better off going with one of the well-known and established conversion kits that run about $800 installed. They ensure that your injection system is not damaged and have been used by some people for years with good results.



I am wary of any solution to any problem that comes in a bottle.

kpaul, the GMP, predicts and then comes true.. It's real and as the price diesel rises the more viable it gets. Check out those gas prices GPTB? kpaul sez $4.00 per gal by the end of the summer at least on the west coast

The Gov't and the Econazis are doing more to create oil shortages and high prices than the Evil Big Oil!

Default I'm a prophet too!

Let's see, the price of homes will go up, taxes will go up, the cost of living will go up, the prices of autos will go up.........hmmm did I miss anything yet? Anyone want to bet against my predictions? Anyone remember that asswipe predicted 4 bucks a gallon last year and was dead wrong? I guess if you wait long enough anything will come true, won't it?

I don't know about homemade diesel, but I could run my bikes on homemade hootch. If there were any left over.

I wish the GMP would have told me to by Ducati stock when it was $6 a share last year.

This is true.



Though oil companies could still drop the price by 50% and still make billions.
