    New diesels are as clean as gas, especially with the newly mandated diesel fuel or biodiesel.

      In fact, bio fuels as presently produced are not sustainable. Dead-end road.

        Right now, they use relatively low oil plants to produce it. Hemp has drastically higher oil content than soy for example, yet hemp isn't used. Even better, though more difficult to efficiently harvest, is algae. Algaeculture has a lot of potential advantages, such as being able to grow it in sewage treatment facilities. Kind of eliminates the whole food vs fuel problem.

        So now that we've won, when does the apocalypse begin?
