Department of Defense testing O2Biodiesel at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas

If biodiesel is green and ethanol is green, then combining the two must be super-green! Or not... Anyway by combining ethanol with biodiesel and a "stabilizing agent", a company called O2Diesel is hoping to make diesel work more effectively for the Department of Defense in colder weather. We have shared with you past examples of their efforts. And now, word comes that a fuel known as O2Biodiesel, consisting of 28 percent renewable resources, is being demonstrated and tested at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas. Hopefully, what happens in Vegas will not stay in Vegas, and the fuel will pass the tests and make it into more widespread use than the standard no2 diesel currently in use with the DOD.
