New from Huntington Beach

Been driving the following

2002 Ford Think Pickup modded to go 35mph daily use
1996 GMC Suburban SLT Diesel "BioBurb" 6.5 110K on homemade BioDiesel ~18 mpg
1983 VW Rabbit Convertible EV currently going through rebuild with ReVolt and Lithiums, should be finished by Sept (hoping)
Home Rooftop Solar 2.5kW Thin Film Omnion Inverter Grid-Tie

No or very small electric and fuel bills for a long time now. Many gallons of Biodiesel from restaurant used oil. We kinda live in the Saudi Arabia of used cooking oil, no shortage but competing with big renders like Baker who swoop in and take it all. Still get enough to run the BioBurb. Just a side note but the Suburban was purchased from a LA based rock band which only ran commercial grade Biodiesel and so it has only had Biodiesel its whole life, runs like new, its quiet, powerful, comfortable and safe. It does weigh over 8000lbs so its no lightweight ecomodder!
