SW Ohio
Soy biodiesel is such an easy changeover it ridiculous. Ethanol sucks for those who don't have a flex fuel vehicle, they can't burn it past E10. I'm in this category with my 02 dodge dakota. Soy diesel can be burned 100% in almost any diesel engine. But as pointed out above, we don't have enough bushels to make that happen. And once you start using more soy for diesel, drives the price of soy up, but drives the diesel cost up as well, so are we really going to gain anything in the end? I would rather have the market for the bushels but until we all can grow 100 bu beans consistently, we don't have enough to replace all the dino oil. Probably still wouldn't then (I'm not gonna try to do math here). I like the research on using meal for fertilizer, I was wondering if it would work before I got to that post.
