    You mean like all the things done to the trucking industry where in 5 years my truck is 9 miles an hour slower and gets 2 less miles to the gallon. Or do you mean ethanol that hurts fuel mileage and does damage to engine parts.

    It is not the fuel as much as all the garbage the are putting on the engine and exhaust. Ethanol does not go in my Pick Up or Harley

    They have additives in the ULSD for that

    Seems to me these old articles are old estimates that have been upgraded

    The Bakken factor: Could this oil reserve become that reliable bridge to a sustainable energy future? | Editorial | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle


    Eleven billion barrels is the latest estimate of reserves in the state's share of the Bakken Formation, which extends for some 25,000 square miles from Canada down into Montana, Wyoming and the Dakotas. Increasingly, the Bakken is being viewed as a major oil resource in the United States.

    Eleven billion barrels is double the previous estimate of reserves, and could eventually push North Dakota into second place among the states for oil production, leapfrogging over California and Alaska and trailing only Texas

    If you are not a registered PE, then you not legally an engineer and can't call yourself one.
    I’m an engineer with no engineering education. I learned by experience and a natural understanding of mechanics. The first drill bit that I designed for oil and gas drilling set five published world records in three categories. One was the fastest, another drilled the most footage and yet another drilled for the most hours.

    Who do you expect will arrest me? Or will I be sued by one of the engineering societies that I belonged to while I was designing drilling tools.

    Today I started designing a new type of disc brakes that will have more clamping power, will last much longer and will be lighter than conventional disc brakes.

    A year ago I finished a pickup truck bed shell that is like nothing on the market today. When I put the prototype that I hand built on my HEMI Dodge truck it got 20% better gas mileage.

    Maybe if I was a real engineer the things that have designed and built would work even better.
