Biodiesel coming on strong?

Companies like Propel Fuels of Seattle Washington are making a big push in the promotion of biodiesel fuels as the next great energy source for the U.S. and for the world.
In a recent interview for Make Magazine, a former co-worker Rob Elam makes a compelling case for this, clean-burning, soybean-based fuel source.
Could this make vehicles such as the Volkswagen Turbo Diesel Golf, Jetta, Passat, and Beetle viable consumer options for clean, lean energy consumption? I know I had looked into these for a while as they get upwards of 50 mpg, however the relative dirtiness of the emissions had turned me off. Maybe that has changed now. Perhaps the first major adopters of this fuel source could be commercial trucking companies, etc.
UPDATE: I didn’t know Willie Nelson has been promoting his own “Willie Fuel” I should have titled this post “On the road again with biofuel” or maybe “You can’t even pretend to think you know about biodiesel! Who do you think you are?”


One response to this post.

  1. Well I’m going to give this a try today. There’s some BioWillie here in Texas and the cost is equal to regular diesel. Sounds like you can’t go wrong with Biodiesel. o_O
