Maui Green Energy
This is a very interesting site that I found on Home Powers links page. I had never heard of Biodiesel, but it sounds promising and is a positive solution for our countries energy crisis. What, you ask, is biodiesel? Well, to quote from Maui Green Energy's FAQ page, "Biodiesel is a cleaner-burning diesel fuel, made from 100% natural, 100% renewable vegetable sources. Here are just a few of the vegetable oils that can be used to make biodiesel - rapeseed, palm tree, olive, peanut, soy bean, safflower, sunflower, castor, etc." They also mention that "Tests and demonstrations, however, have shown that biodiesel is no different from petroleum diesel in terms of engine performance and wear." Check out the list of companies that sell biodiesel. Some of them make their biodiesel from used cooking oil. Go to this website to find out more and be sure to look at all the photos of biodiesel vehicles that are currently in use.
