Given some thought, it all makes sense to me, the press's job is not
informing the public, like any corporation, the press is interested in
increasing their corporate profits. They're not concerned with
accuracy, just what they've learned the public will pay for.
In my opinion they know well the intelligence and maturity of their
readers, if the majority the readers buy crap, crap is what we'll get.

That can be fixed tho with a second tank, tank heater, transfer valves, and
a sufficient memory to switch back to petrol diesel before shutting the
Or you can do what I'd do and use biodiesel in oil furnaces thus saving the
petrol diesel for vehicles.
Call me crazy.

It would seem that if someone went through the effort of growing of a
feed-crop and were bright enough to figure out the transesterification
process, they might be bright enough to Google "Diesel Fuel Heaters",
although bio-diesel does have known problems with the cold, to a
certain extent so do plain old diesels and diesel fuel heaters have
been around for decades.
I prefer ethanol to bio-diesel for simplicity reasons, but have
friends in Wisconsin that make and use bio-diesel year round and at
least when I lived there, it got cold enough to were I had to plug my
gasoline car in at night so it would start next morning.
LG, didn't homepower or Mother's do an article on corn feed stoves? I
remember reading an article once.
