A great band - Listened to them a long time ago!!! I have not given their latest cd a listen though. I remember seeing a local show and some dude was wearing a Stretch shirt - we talked about how you don't see many people with shirts or that know about them.

That was such a long time ago though!!!

Cheers,

Steve

How much work did it take to get that up and running?

I have heard/read so many different ways of converting to biodiesel.

I really want to do the same I just need to find a car to do it to.

Actually, it was really easy. If you end up getting a diesel older than about '92, you'll need to replace the fuel lines. If you get a newer one you don't need to do anything. You'll need to replace your fuel filter after 2-3 tanks of biodiesel, as biodiesel runs smooth and removes all of the corrosion diesel leaves behind, which can clog your filter.

I'm happy to give tons more info. Maybe I'll make a separate post on here. :D

Definitely a good idea. I'll add it to my to-do list. :D
