Nelson has become an icon of biodiesel use. His personal vehicles and tour bus all run on biodiesel. At home on Maui, Hawaii, he drives a Mercedes-Benz E-Class diesel sedan powered 100 percent by diesel. His wife, Annie, drives a Volkswagen Jetta diesel.
I haven’t decided about biodiesel yet, but like Willie, I know it’s better than oil. But I still don’t have a warmy and fuzzy feeling about corporate control of the corn crop, GMO corn as fuel, corn as a monoculture, etc. I admit I’m unlearned in the subject, but one day I’ll figure it out and write something thoughtful about it. But in the meantime, read more about BioWillie here.

P.S. — I made the illustration a lot smaller to fit on my blog, so you can’t see the writing on the yellow ribbon that Willie is pasting on his truck. For the record? It says “Bring Them Home.”
