Willie Nelson's Biodiesel


Hot on the heels of our post about biodiesel (and license plates declaring you veggie-fueled), we’re happy to tell you that Willie Nelson and co. are marketing their vegetable oil-based BioWillie to truck stops. Unlike the biodiesel in our earlier reports, their fuel can go straight into your diesel tank (they compare the differences and relative merits of biodiesel and straight vegetable oil here), made possible by a blend with ordinary diesel. Patriotic as well as environmental reasons encouraged Nelson to first start using biodiesel, and the materials for his fuel continue to be made by American family farming.
