Veggie Voyagers

Couple travelled 30 states and 3 Canadian provinces between 7/07 and 5/08 running their 1987 Ford truck on straight veggie oil. The blog continues with a focus on the natural world and energy politics from a personal perspective

Chico Veggie Men

Carl is a local Chico man with an interest in straight veggie oil processing. Before him a collective was making biodiesel but one of the members had had liver damage requiring chelation therapy due to poor ventilation with the methanol recovery aspect of biodiesel production. Our local weekly had coverage on a new
local biodiesel producer that came out the day we returned so that made us think some of the issues on veggie oil acquisition had been solved.
Carl has been a great person for Michael to converse with and bounce ideas around with so Michael did a demonstration for Carl at his shop. I got some photos. Obviously Carl isn’t getting rich experimenting with veggie oil.. but, I do believe in these men and what they are doing and appreciate very much their willingness to try to implement their own independent energy policy while the country is still in thrall to export oil and corporate greed.
