For gods sake Footloose you'd think after all this time you could at least post a link properly.

Even if they could make Diesel for 10cents a litre we will still have to pay $1.80 to buy it........that's just how it is those days.

There are well proven methods to convert waste plastics into diesel. We have played with the technology. 20 T plastic will produce 18000 lt diesel (in theory) Crude needs to be at about $110 / barrel to make it pay.

Good point.

As crude prices go up, more alternatives will become viable.

But they are still only a stop gap measure, we will run out one day :o)

Don't be too sure.

Do a little research on the Canadian oil sands deposits, which are being tapped now, but only at a "small" scale.

I saw a documentary on it the other day, and from memory they said there's about 380x the known Arab countries' oil reserves in those sands.

Thanks Doug, I was about to insert the link but had to close down fairly quickly. Now sitting here with the room gradually drying out..most of it anyway. Once water starts to flood in from the hill behind me it becomes dangerous to stay because of the electric leads that festoon the place :)))))
