Pigs Fly

I'm so glad that this is starting to happen. It has taken dire circumstances, but now the "alternatives" are starting to crop up. In this case Biodiesel is being sold on Shelburne Road in South Burlington, VT. I clicked this a few weeks ago while sitting in traffic. I'm not sure the circumstances (are they using pure biodiesel? a blend? what's the cost difference?), but the fact of the matter is that Shell is selling a renewable fuel. I'm going to keep tabs on this one.

"The use of vegetable oils for engine fuels may seem insignificant today, but such oils may become, in the course of time, as important as petroleum and the coal-tar products of the present time." - Rudolf Diesel, 1912

UPDATE: All I had to do was a little searching. Looks like they are doing a B20 mix. It's a start.
