Not in a truck, as far as I can tell. I know some folks who put a BMW 5-cyl car engine into a modded BMW bike frame and ran it on bio (I think, not svo). Any way about it, I want to raise the bar a little. Hopefully enough to give the petrol guys a run for their $$.

If you haven't checked it out in a while, please take another look and let me know what you think! The site and club have been growing a little bit! We just got an article about the club published in a fairly well known hotrod magazine, Goodguys Gazette. You can either wander around the site and find the article (if you choose to do this, please let me know how easy, or difficult, it was) or read it here: http://greenspeed.me/Greenspeed/Press_f ... g10rev.pdf. Hopefully we'll be having a bunch more of this kind of thing coming out in the near future to help convince potential sponsors it's worth their time and money to invest in us. Again, please give me some feedback on the site!!! I would greatly appreciate it.

They were good, but you can't have the oil. :P
