Visit From Drive To Sustain

Quite often we have some incredible visitors stop by on their way through Utah doing amazing things with Biodiesel and Biofuels in general.

On the 3rd of December we had one such visit from a group called Drive To Sustain.

This group is amazing! Traveling all across the United States and into Canada, this groups goal is to hit every state in the US and every province in Canada.

As they travel, they’re hooking up with educators to teach students all about the benefits of using Biofuels. They track all the cool places they’ve been via GPS on their website and have been keeping an updated log all along the way.

Their rig is a Mistubishi van with a diesel engine in it. They imported it into Canada, built it up to run on either Biodiesel or straight vegetable oil, picked up a bunch of sponsors along the way, and headed off on the trip!

Check out the internals of this rig!

In the rear is a large fuel tank that stores filtered veggie oil. The van pulls it’s fuel right from this tank as it flies on down the highway.

Tagging along behind is a trailer that has an on-board filtering setup. They can pull up to an oil stop, filter the oil right on site, and be back up & running in no time flat!

Inside the van they’ve got all the creature comforts you might need for traveling long distances.

Traveling down the highway they’re a site to behold! Proclaiming the mission of Biofuels every mile along the way!

Under the left seat (which happens to be the passenger side) sits the small but efficient diesel engine.

They said that it’s been a great engine overall but they have had to do some repairs here & there (including a full top end rebuild when the timing belt went out last year).

The challenges of driving cross country with the potential of engine problems though haven’t phased them a bit! When they stopped at our place they were headed into Salt Lake to teach a group of students the next day all about Biofuels.
