RE: [DMCForum] Gas alternatives, then?



Ryan,

I wasn't referring to the biodiesel, rather the electric conversions.

Untrue. It's very cheap to convert a car. Something in the ~$1,000
range. And you can still run them on regular diesel, too. So when you
get some free veggie oil, dump it in and your fuel cost is $0. When
you don't have any, use normal diesel.
