We really need to look at how we view fuels too.

Neither Bio-diesel or straight vegatable oil have any sulpher in them.

Ethanol burns very clean (just make it from something other than corn)

There are all sorts of diesel generators around that seem to be exempt from laws. I have heard that lawm mowers pollute more than cars because they are cheaply made and have no emmissions controls.
