Alternative fuel worth the time and energy
I think plans to construct an alternative-fueling station in Burbank would be wonderful (“Council looks to alternative fueling,” Jan. 19).
I drive a Mercedes-Benz diesel that runs on straight vegetable oil (the cleanest car on the road at this moment).
If Councilwoman Anja Reinke thinks “it’s a waste of time at this point,” she’s not well informed. There are hundreds of recycled Mercedes diesels in Los Angeles that have been converted to run on straight vegetable oil, waste vegetable oil or bio diesel. In addition to ethanol, why not sell waste vegetable oil to these drivers?
The city can collect it free from restaurants, filter it and sell it.
