    That is why we need to see diesel engines in microlights. Most modern diesels will run on bio diesel.

    That's not a bio Diesel Bob. It's a bio replacement for petrol with spark ignition not compression ignition as per a diesel.

    Hydrogen engines are not as clean as people think either. Yes they are clean at the vehicle burn stage, but have you seen how much energy it takes to make hydrogen?

    I reckon a cork would do it just need to find one the right size
    The best time to learn to fly was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

    I think that bio fuel should come into the clean category in that it is not a fossil fuel, but a side effect is that to grow it may mean cutting forests which are the CO2 cleaners of the world.
    An interesting point is that Just about any diesel engine on the road will run on bio diesel, yet very few spark ignitions will. When I say Bio diesel, I also mean just about any old chip fat out there.
