Begin at the Beginning

This site is intended to chronolog my adventure into the world of hybrid fuels, bio diesel, and readily available gasoline alternatives.  Why? Because gas costs too much and smog sucks.

Sitting at home, watching one of my favorite shows, Mythbusters, I was stunned and awed when the typical fuel used in their old diesel Mercedes was successully replaced with vegetable oil as a fuel alternative.  The car ran, seemingly with no problems, and I started asking questions.

Why didn’t I know about this before?  Why don’t all cars run on vegetable oil?  Why am I paying so much for gas?

The next logical step was to try it for myself.

My plan over the next few months is to purchase a diesel automobile, modify it to accept a vegetable based fuel and report on the results.
