Here’s the thing about converting your gone-to-hell hipster Mercedes Benz diesel car from the 1970’s or 1980’s to biodiesel- it aint easy. Or rather, the easier the conversion, the harder it is for you the driver to deal with.
So you end up having to get people to help you push your car around, as here, just like Herb Caen and his various Jaguar cars. And if there’s no place to park, well then you block traffic on Battery for a while, as here.
That’s O.K. – this kind of ordeal makes you stronger.
It’s the same with MUNI’s operation of biodiesel buses – they’re finding a need to replace fuel filters on almost a weekly basis, per a report I saw from earlier this year.
Nobody said being a pioneer would be easy.
