Shoulda had a Pepsi.

The sugar content in the Coke might have led to the malfunction of the engine. Turn it into alcohol instead and it would be OK.

Why do people hate the 2003 BMW 325i wagon? Was it a beater? I could only hear the audio because Noscript blocked innovid.com and extremereach.io.

But I'm pretty sure you could run that $1500 bill higher by putting the Coke in the crankcase instead of the fuel tank.

That bill was padded as hell. Drop the tank, flush. Open the fuel rail, flush. Start it, drive away. $0. :rolleyes:

Speaking of alt fuels, I thought we would be enjoying algae smoothies and driving all over creation using algae as fuel and heating our buildings with algae by now? :confused:

Elon Musk could use his boring machine to make a submarine tunnel from the Pacific to Death Valley. That would jump start the whole thing.

Iím on a Mobil so give me a break about the google addy

Anyway, before algae would take offcelluloic was supposed to be first, but it appears many of the big players are exiting Cellulosic while lone wolf POET from Norway is suing contractors but still in business.

If cellulosic doesnít succeed, itís unlikely coal fired algae diesel will find its way into production

Ah well, we have the tech but oils cheap at the moment

'splain me Lucy. (Lucille Ball joke)

What's coal got to do with it? The requirement is sea water and sunlight. The technological hurdle is economically separating the algal oils from water.

So Dupont sunk millions into a technlogy that wasn't Thermal_depolymerization.
