On the Road Again

Willie Nelson and three business partners recently formed a company called Willie Nelson's Biodiesel that is marketing the fuel to truck stops. The fuel is made from vegetable oils, mainly soybeans, and can be burned without modification to diesel engines.

"I got on the computer and punched in biodiesel and found out this could be the future," said Nelson, who now uses the fuel for his cars and tour buses.

You Said

I'm all for trying new fuel sources, but the fact that biodiesel gels up in cold weather even worse than regular diesel is a major downside.

I hope Willie and his partner hired an accountant to keep them out of tax trouble. I think he is still paying off the IRS.

As someone who used to bea fuel system research engineer for a major diesel engine manufacturer, I can tell you its not quite as simple as filling up with biodiesel versus regular diesel...
