Anyone Else Sick Of Getting Robbed at the Pump?
Yeah, I know, DUH!!! As you may have seen already, to the right I have been looking into a new way to get myself around besides via the stinger missile. It actually makes me depressed at the thought of getting rid of it, but mid 20's on mileage just ain't cutting it. A car is probably the worst investment you can make, but not so for the world around you. I'm so sick of the Ethanol red herring, that I'm looking to my own solution and going diesel in the near future. I've been very intrigued with going bio diesel as the studies keep pouring in. VW is now claiming to have a 60 MPG diesel on it's way before the year is up. Of course those numbers could very well be over stated by an otherwise extremely trustworthy auto industry...I can't even type that with a straight face. Face it, ethanol is a joke and a danger to the environment and wallets of consumers.
My brother-in-law has been a guinea pig for the last year using his Jetta to see if creating bio diesel is worth it. Turns out, it's not bad. I plan on waiting to see if Subaru will ever get their plan to go diesel off the ground, and if so, I may very well bite.
Bottom line, I think corn sueezin's are better off left to the guys in Lynchburg and not to oil companies. In a world where we see our oil prices jump to all time highs where the rest of the world sees only moderate increases...must I finish the thought?
