MSN Money - Fill your tank with vegetable oil
Either people are becoming more conservation-aware or MSN is tracking where I'm going on the internet and tailors it's headlines to my interests! Everyday, MSN provides a new article for me to click about gas or energy.
The sad thing about biodiesel being a viable source of energy is that it ultimately won't replace all energy consumption. It may be one of the things that helps. If everybody used vegetable oil to run their cars, just think about how much land, fossil fuels, and energy would be needed to produce the product! You would have to grow the crops which rely on fossil fuels for fertilizers, pesticides, and the farm machinery, let alone think about the amount of land that would be taken away from food production. It'll be eat or drive! In a nutshell, it would still take more energy to produce than to use. I have to say it's a start in the right direction, though. At least people are thinking about ways to reduce our dependence on oil.
