Wheels.17

The 20 Year Car

im considering a diesel, but before you all groan and say "there
goes the neighborhood" (:)  you should know that i am very into
biodiesel and griesel.  the main difference between the two is
processing and needing extra equipment.  biodiesel is ready to go,
but takes more processing and more caustic fluids.  griesel takes
less processing and no caustics but requires an extra fuel tank to
get the vehicle warmed up before you switch over tot he griesel,
which is basicall used vegetable oil, while bio-d is a combo of used
v-oil and methanol and then water at the end.

ive heard diesels last a long time.  i think my 20 year car would be
a diesel volvo wagon.  i have a gas 79 and it is so solid, but as
you say, the wiring is a problem.  still, its the safest.

im also considering a ford diesel van for its trucklike abilities
and enclosed space, and i wont feel like a gasshole if i fuel it
with alternatives.

what advice/ can you offer me in these ruminations?  and thank you
in advance :)
