At 330,000 Miles, My Diesel Benz Is Going Veggie Page 2

September 29, 2008

Having restored many of the old Benzes he's converted to run on vegetable oil, Dan has some serious connections in the automotive painting and detail business. The thought of a respectable, affordable paint job is very tempting. That and a set of slick 16-inch Mercedes rims with new tires Dan has all but promised to give me if I just take the plunge and go pure veggie...

That's it! It's time to go back to California. This time, powered by nothing but waste vegetable oil for all 2,257 miles. It looks like early December is going to be the best time for the trek. And perhaps when I return to Atlanta, my ride will finally look as good as it drives.

Now to start ordering parts and pieces.--Colin Mathews
