Panamericana 2006 update: World records broken using biodiesel
May 22 – The last 400 kilometers were so much smoother than much of the trip. There were no breakdowns, no troubles crossing the border, no personal difficulties. The cars ran smooth and a sort of ease came over the drivers. All the liters of soy, palm, walnut and other biodiesels they had burned somewhere to the north were worth it. The team members' tears of happiness mixed with the snow as they stand on "the southern tip of the National Route No.3 at Lapataia Bay". Many more details will be available in the group's upcoming book on the 25,000 km journey using biodiesel.
