  1. Hello, Will transportation be provided for the tour? Thank you.

    if all you change is the fuel the result is a dominance by a few. Mathematically, if you change the fuel, you are changing the BTU content and all it means is an altered fuel flow rate.

    What you propose is ‘slight of hand’ shifting the power from one small group to another… J Paul Getty wanted to sell ‘ethyl’, (gasoline) and the major selling point was ‘twice as far on a tank of gas’ which is true because gasoline has nearly twice the BTU content of the most common fuel available: Moonshine Alcohol. the government could not find and tax all the producers, and by consolidating fuel to a single source by sending the ‘Revenooers’ after the Moonshiner, (thanks for creating NASCAR) J Paul Getty and his Washington cronies put America on the path to fuel dependency that now has us ‘over a barrel’ with our enemies in the Middle East.

    This is why my motor is crucial: the improvement in efficiency allows for lower BTU fuels to be used that are the bio fuels, (Alcohol and Biodiesel) that can be produced locally, denying the power brokers to consolidate by having a choke hold on resources.
