I'd like to see a big improvemnt in the use of biodiesel. The thought of growing our own fuel would make a hec of a difference to the world, in particular the Middle East.
That is more down to manufacturing tolerances than design. The problems with tight tolerances in the field are the slightest bit opf grit jams things. Hence the success of the AK47!!! For example the most accurate sniping rifles are still bolt action designs - ie Lee Enfield.
If only things were so simple - biodiesel is an environmental disaster waiting to happen. There just is not enough used oil to go around. To satisfy the Greens demand for this fuel need VAST areas of land to grow the crops needed. Indonesia for example are growing loads of palms to try to meet the Europe/USA demand - the problem is they are cutting down the rainforest to do it!!!
Same is happening with Bioethanol in South America - already the local population are starting to starve as the crops are all being sent to make biofuels for the USA.
And WHY? So that people can feel good and say they are carbon neutral and care about the planet!!!
The ONLY big source of power that will save the planet is nuclear. They should never burn gas/oil to generate electricity - it's bonkers.
