  • Diesel shortages

    https://www.reuters.com/markets/comm...rd-2022-05-10/


    Watch this space. US food deliveries depend on diesel. Stock down to one day or something like that.

    May you live in int.. never mind.

    I predict a resurgence of interest in biofuel, both in the US and Europe.

      I predict a riot....
      Don't bother with Eco, it's not very nice, leave it in normal & drive it like you just stole it.

        I’m standing in a field full of sheep, is it wrong that I feel aroused?? 🤨🤪

          Not in HGVs and not for a very long time despite all the talk of electrification or hydrogen.

          No-one cares about Passat TDI drivers, but food not getting to your local Aldi/Tesco is another thing.

            I'd like to go back in time to meet the guy who said, 'may you live in interesting times' and punch him in the face!
            23 years in business and I seem to have rolled from one 'interesting' time - Foot & Mouth , remember that, to another, with maybe 2 years of predictable stability in all that time.

                I did my undergrad thesis (Business Studies) on biodiesel's viability here, back in the late 80s.

                  Eh, I do

                  700kg of battery gets you two hours down the road, but diesel makes the economy go around.

                    Emissions multiple times more carcinogenic than regular Diesel, or is that a myth?

                      Like I said, no-one cares about your two hour commute..

                      Like with any previous wartime, private cars had to make do, in WW1 and 2 cars had to run on wood gas. It's always agri and freight that get priority.

                        Imagine if you lived in a place with actual problems and not out in the Atlantic shielded from practically everything and corporate tax off iPhones is paying for everything.

                          Great question, wasn't on the radar to the same extent at all back in the late 80's
                          Quick Google search brought this:
                          https://www.consumerreports.org/cro/...-oil/index.htm
                          My understanding was that pure cooking oil was the one to be avoided

                            I've always wondered if biodiesel solves the "carcinogenic" problem. I guess particles are particles at the end of the day so no or maybe even worse with biodiesel?

                              Yeah yeah you already used that line when you were over in March & I was stressing about the Season, I guess they'll have to be filed away with MIng's FWP's.
                              And don't worry I'm well aware I'm a privileged mofo mostly!
