Yup, I understand that. I'm sure the Detroit 8V92 on my bus could run
off straight veggie oil. But I'd have to mount a veggie oil tank
somewhere and do a conversion and then go find the oil... I've thought

Oh, I agree with you there. We still need the band-aid. When you get
hurt and need stitches, do you leave the wound gaping open? No - you
apply a band-aid because even though it won't fix the problem, it's at
least an improvement over what you had. So long as we as a country
understand that's all this is, just a band-aid and that we need a
better long term solution...
