    Hmmm. Name Address: dsl-201-138-234-12-dyn.prod-infinitum.com.mx - Hey! Apdst stick to discussing the technical aspects of mining/oil drilling. The political/economic aspects of it are way above your pay grade.

    Local mining companies compared to multi-national oil companies that have a couple hundred thousand veterans of a ten year guerilla war to draw from?
    Sigh. Okay, here we go:

    Great Panther Silver - Operations - Guanajuato Mine Complex - Guanajuato Mine Complex - German multinational.
    Impact Silver Corp. - Zacatecas, Mexico - Tue Dec 17, 2013 - American multinational
    Del Toro Underground Silver Mine, Zacatecas - Mining Technology - Canadian multinational.

    Yep, sure sounds local. Again, you have no clue what it is you're discussing.

    There's this thing called "the big picture" and "common sense" that, when employed together allow one to understand really wonderful things.

    It was American veterans of the Vietnam War that taught the Mujas how to route the Red Army in Afghanistan. It's infantile to think that American veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan can't send the cartel clowns to the house, or the grave yard.
    Spare me the chest beating. It's been tried by multinational mining companies and it has failed miserably.

I was thinking, "cool, more Mexican jobs and a huge boost to the Mexican economy" when in reality what it might really mean is expanded corruption and violence. Thanks for an alternate point of view that I certainly wouldn't have heard about on CNN, or any other MSM outlet.
    No matter how you slice it this is good news for America and bad news for people like you that want high oil prices.

    In the past, there was much concern about the amount of influence the ME had on us. Also, much bitching about Obama refusing o allow drilling. Now, this renders these topics indifferent. Or am I mising something here?

This is no more difficult than considering the octane rating of your fuel.

    Now, as to running it in your expensive vehicle, the biodiesel runs cleaner than petrodiesel and so your engine lasts even longer. You're better off with biodiesel than petrodiesel in that regard.

    If you're getting methanol spikes then the fuel wasn't processed completely. This is no different than buying bad gas that wasn't refined correctly. Btw, our state runs checks on all biodiesel just as it does petrodiesel.
    We see the methanol spikes and variances in akalis all the time, there is now way I would put that crap in anyting I had money invested in, there is not one producer that has this process down

    Maybe where you work that might be true, but not here in Oregon. There's already a 5% biodisel component in all petrodiesel sold here. Our state's major waste company runs all it's vehicles on B80 they get from waste biodiesel generation. My own town's fleet all runs on B80 as does the majority of the Trimet bus system. It's sold at the pump like petrodiesel and subject to the same inspections for quality.

    Don't know where you're getting yours from, but it sounds like it's a crappy implementation of the biodiesel process and for some reason your state isn't doing it's job. How in the world can you trust the petrodiesel you're buying if the state is so lax on quality checks and enforcement?

    it is multiple states- IL, IA, MI, MN, WI

    it is not good stuff in colder climates, between filters and engine stoppages it is not worth it. Since the tax credits evaporated there is that much being produced anymore

    It's just fine in colder climates, but it needs the blend to be B50 rather than the more prevelent around the nation B80. If you're getting gelling at B50 you're in Antartica. Once you use biodiesel regularly you don't have to change filters any more often than with petrodiesel, what's gumming up the filters is all the crap you've been running the engine on in the past.

    And tax credits for what? Using biodiesel? Never been such a tax credit AFAIK. Producing it? Perhaps, but since producers can make more from it than oil refiners can with oil that doesn't make much sense. Any diesel vehicle made after 1986 has the right hoses for it (biodiesel is more corrosive than petrodiesel, that's why the engines run cleaner and last longer).

    Re: North America to Drown in Oil as Mexico Ends Monopoly

    I'm actually quite excited about what I read today:

    Algae converted to crude oil in less than an hour, energy department says

    The day when planes, trucks and cars are commonly revved up on pond scum may be on the near horizon thanks to a technological advance that continuously turns a stream of concentrated algae into bio-crude oil. From green goo to crude takes less than an hour.

    The goo contains about 10 percent to 20 percent algae by weight. The rest is water. This mixture is piped into a high-tech pressure cooker where temperatures hover around 660 degrees Fahrenheit and pressures of 3,000 pounds per square inch in order to keep the mixture in a liquid phase.

    An hour after being poured into the cooker, gravity separates the crude oil from the water as it flows out the other end. "We can clean up that bio-crude and make it into liquid hydrocarbons that could well serve to displace the gas, diesel, and jet (fuel) that we make from petroleum now," he added.

    What's more, a further water-processing step recovers methane essentially natural gas from the leftover plant material. The remaining nitrogen-rich water and recovered phosphorous can be recycled to grow more algae.
