An important new campaign lead by our friends Robin and Michele at Dogpatch Biofuels. Please take a moment to check out the website and sign the petition. This issue has the potential to spin out of control and cause great damage to the emerging biodiesel industry. Please act now!


Hello everyone,

Please check out a new campaign website: !

We sent out an e-mail about a month ago regarding the compatibility issues arising with biodiesel and new diesel vehicles. To quickly re-cap: the method in which many engine manufacturers are handling new emissions control systems (year 2007.5 and newer) involve in-cylinder injection of fuel late in the engine cycle. This has been shown to lead to engine oil dilution which is exasperated by the use of biodiesel, in blends from B5 to B100.

In order to make it easier to gather support (and at the great suggestion of some of our customers) we have created a website detailing the issue and an online petition which will go out to engine manufacturers along with the California Air Resources board and the EPA. The idea is to build grass roots support from us, the consumer, to demonstrate why biodiesel needs to be a viable option for all diesel vehicles.

We invite you to browse the website ( to learn more about the issue and please add your name to the petition.

In addition please contact us if you have ideas about how to build this campaign. And please share the website with anyone you think would be interested.

Thank-you for your support!

I really like your site and wanted to see if there was any way to have my site,, listed on your list of links as a source for your visitors to use to search for jobs specifically in the Clean / Renewable Energy sector. The CleanTech sector is exploding and we want to help fuel that growth for the sake of everyone!
The benefits to your visitors would be:
• We have job listings from the largest companies in the CleanTech sector such as NextEraEnergy (largest producer of Wind), POET (largest producer of BioFuels), Xunlight and SunPower (leading Solar providers). We also have many startups and multinationals such as General Electric, British Petroleum, etc.
• We average more than 500 posted and active job openings per day. This is significantly more than ANY other Clean Technology Job Board in the U.S.
• Our site is getting thousands of “hits” per day from Job Seekers. We send those who opt-in for Job Alerts, weekly emails with our new job postings. They love the fact that we are keeping them informed on what new jobs are out there!
• We are listed on major university sites (Stanford, Caltech, Purdue, etc.) as a premier career resource.
Thanks for your consideration. I hope you will visit our site and consider adding us to your site. Please let me know your thoughts and feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
Best Regards,

Bob Deskin
