Wanna save on gas and save the planet? Learn to power your car with biodiesel. On June 9, at a 6 p.m. Carbonfree DC meetup at Martin Luther King Library downtown, they’ll say where in the DC area where you can buy biodiesel, plus talk about local laws and incentives.

You’ll also learn how to make your own biodiesel home brew with vegetable oil, perhaps gathered from area restaurants — the very epitome of reduce, reuse, recycle.

Of course, this might make you drive hungry, the scent of fast food wafting through your car. French fry, anyone?

An area resident since 1997, Donna C. is a DC outsider. When she’s not running her writing and Web business, she’s running around the city, exploring the great outdoors, or trying to figure out how best to go green. See why she loves DC.
