Highly recommend slowly switching over to "vegetable oil" diesel
engines (diesel to start & vegetable to run) hybridized for electric for
city use. Not only don't you have to run expensive "cracking" petrochemical
plants to produce gasoline but you can use either fuel to heat your house.
Googlize "Mercedes Benz, diesel, vegetable oil" to see what I mean. More
public transit helps as well. If you're stuck (or want) a big SUV, think
diesel in the future or downsize a model next time. Use the SUV less. Try
carpooling. If you have a small car, stick to it or look for the next
hi-mileage alternative. It's a little bit of EVERYTHING that makes the big
changes. - Bill
