Front page MSN: "Fill your tank with vegetable oil"

Saw this on the MSN site today. The old 240D just gets worth more everyday..........
2002 E320 Sedan 63K Designo Mocha Black Metallic!
1995 E320 Wagon 185K Black Wagon
1982 240D 1K SloPoke

I believe each of these cars are the final production year for that model.

Cool-"Endorsed by Rudolf Diesel himself
It turns out biodiesel is not a new idea. When Rudolf Diesel introduced his signature engine at the 1900 Paris Exposition, he said two words as he started it: "Peanut oil." He'd designed his engine so farmers could grow their own fuel. Most diesel engines were indeed run on vegetable oil until the 1920s, when the petroleum industry promoted a gasoline byproduct as diesel fuel."
