Default Gabe's Prediction:

All work at MO will grind to a halt until Ashley gets one of these.

Neat!!! When's the full test? Now if they'd go a little further and make a DOT legal one that'll keep up with traffic (a la TW-200) you can sign me up.

Your endorsement would carry more weight if you actually, you know, owned a biodiesal vehicle.

BTW, where is the "I told you so"? I see an article about the introduction of a vehicle. Not "Biodiesal vehicle sales figures rocket, experts hail revolutionary engines." Hell, you constantly pimp them and can't even get yourself to buy one (and don't link to an image of one from a dealer website again, either, Pinocchio.)

I'm actually on your side on this one.



Biodiesel isn't very efficient from the perspective of how much land is required to grow the fuel. We would have to put most, if not all, the current arable land in North America to use growing the fuel in order to run the current number of vehicles in the US and Canada. I like efficiency and really like that you can grow your fuel supply, but I also really like to eat.

Next door neighbor - and GA Tech ee - pilots a mighty Jetta diesel Wagon. And she has jumped onto the frywagon bandwagon, too. Unfortunately there is only one place here on the prosperous, upscale northside to fill. Fortunately it's just up the road. Unfortunately she can't run the stuff in really chilly weather. Fortunately we are near the peak of the 15-20 yr warm cycle so we have fewer really chilly days. Unfortunately it has yet to be seen if biodiesel is economically viable. Fortunately we can rely on Adam Smith's invisible hand to sort all this out.
