Enough is enough

Alright I had enough with these $4.60 a gallon for diesel for a couple reaons.
1) Should cost less for diesel than gas.....less refinment
2) I need to fill up a 38 gallon tank which is $175
3) THE PRICE IS STILL GOING UP

I am going to go with some altertive fuel for my diesel. I dont know what I should get does anyone have a good biodiesel system that still has good performance? So I can spend less money on this riducoulsly priced fuel!

Here in maryland its illegal to run offroad and ther is a hefty fine if you get caught. And i dont think that you can pull up to a offrad dieasel pump and just fill your truck up.

For every barrel of Crude Oil that goes in to a refinery this is what you get out:

23 Gallons of Gas
13 Gallons of Diesel
7 Gallons of Kerosene
2 Gallons of Propane
8 Gallons of other stuff


With that said, I'll be happy with the $3.79 I paid on Sat. for 500ppm LSD.

Still cost me $280.00 to fill up 71 gallons

It's pretty much slaughtering the market for diesels, right when they were really catching on and taking off. Now thanks to the price of the fuel for them, I'm afraid it might hurt their progress. At worst it should be even with the price of gas, not a dollar or so above it. Gasoline vehicles still outnumber diesel by a very fair margin.
