Nissan’s R35 GTR is a performance icon. It’s also a car that we’ve featured here on Gas 2 in various forms over the years, most notably as a Switzer Performance-tuned, ethanol-fueled street terror. Keep in mind, we’ve never posted any sort of official acceleration times, but the comments and emails surrounding Switzer’s E900 and E1K-X posts always include the same question: how fast will it go?
Our sister site Cleantechnica recently posted this great article about Origin Oil, which is pulling out all the stops to lower the costs of producing algae-based biofuels for consumers. Click through to check it out!
According to a team of researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, algea-based biofuels could replace up to 17 % of America’s petroleum imports each year, without a significant impact on fresh water use. The issue of where the water necessary to grow the algal components for the fuel is (arguably) the greatest singles source […]
