You are aware that using B100 will emit MORE NOx than using petro diesel right?

The amount of CO2 that a coal fired plant (if that's even what is used to provide the energy for your area) to produce enough watts to power a generator for 1 hour is undoubtedly less than what you are emitting when running a DIESEL engine for the same amount of time.
