Well, you can, sort of.
Its called a biodiesel processor. All except for the gasser engine part.

I likely have already owned my last gas engine auto/light truck. Way too much benefit in NOT having them damn spark plugs.

Its crazy to me that we don't have more diesel vehicles here. Go to Europe everything but supercars are diesel. I wish I could have one here. But they claim we have no market for it here.

I concur Vandy. About your only options in passenger cars are the VW TDI's and a few Mercedes.

I could not be more content with the VW's. We each have one, and each have a PSD. I think it is the best of both worlds- 50 MPG on the cars, and heavy iron trucks. Sadly, they are aging, and the supply of both ALH/PD VW's as well as the 7.3 are becoming very tight. I think I may be able to round up one more 7.3 for myself in the next year. After that, I may just want to build a 12V cummins equiped F350. The 99.5-2003 VW's are getting tough to find too (with reasonable miles).

On a side note: Our comander in cheese, thinks electric hybrids are the future! What a douche bag. A VW TDI gets better mileage without the frickin' batteries! That is a whole different debate which I wont have right now.

Yeah I don't get it. I guess the volt has already been **** canned. A guy from fox news...maybe MSNBC took one out. Added the cost of the electric to recharge it. Came out to being higher to operate and took 2x as long to get where you need to go than a civic. It was an interesting read

IT would help if every small company that came out with an electric car wasn't bought out by a shadow company and shut down the next week.
Big Oil or Big Three??

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.

What I dont get is this:

Full electric cars.
Where do these clowns think the majority of electricity comes from?
Here are some clues. 1) NOT solar 2) NOT wind

Yes, some power generation does occur from a renewable source. Hydro. Especially in my neiborhood. Canadian hydro power.

The majority of the remaining power comes from COAL. Electric is not the solution.

How about this for a concept car...A VW or Audi clean diesel hybrid, engineered to run B100! Not B5 or B10, like most all american sold diesels, FULL B100. Cant get much greener than that, IMHO.

GM killed the diesel market here in the 80s with their POS 350 gasser they threw new heads on and called it a diesel.

It was a gutless POS that would not start if it got below 40 degrees.

I have a tidal Power plant just a few miles from me. Been there for about 30 years. Guess how much power we have gotten from it. That would be ZERO. It all goes to the New England states. It's a clean renewable way to generate power but we get none of it. Instead our government thinks it makes more sense to supply us with power from a coal fired plant. A couple years ago in the middle of winter we had a nasty storm which knocked out power for days. Alot of people had no heat & was forced to take shelter in schools, firehalls etc.. But that powerplant was still running & we still got none of it. Would take too much time to switch it over to the local grid we was told. That pissed alot of people off & was one of the reasons the government was voted out in the next election. Didn't make a difference though cause we still get none of it.
