MB's new CO2 friendly diesels

Talk about some spin doctors at work.......... smells like their saying that MB has invented biodesel.

More like they have the first commercial biofuel intended for mass distribution vs recycling french fry oil. Not that there is anything wrong with putting used veggie oil in a diesel, mind you, but Diamler has produced a commercial product.

I wonder what this will do for the price and desriability of crop land?

There are commercial biodiesel plants in every Major country and in a few third world ones as well.
