Fueling a Revolution
A great article from the San Francisco Chronicle the other day:
About a year ago, Paul McNees chose to change his life by changing his fuel.
He sold his Saturn sport utility vehicle and bought a diesel-powered Mercedes-Benz. A mechanic whipped it into running order and replaced the soft rubber fuel lines with something sturdier.
Then the El Sobrante teacher started burning biodiesel -- a fuel cooked up not from petroleum but from vegetable oil, often waste oil from restaurants or food processing plants.
"I just couldn't justify filling up that tank with gasoline anymore for a multitude of reasons,'' said McNees, 43, citing global warming and the war in Iraq. "This has been great. It's totally cleaned out the engine. It runs great, has a lot more power. It sort of smells like french fries -- it doesn't have that noxious diesel smell."
You can read the entire article from the San Francisco Chronicle website.
