Okay, so we're all for people running biodiesel as a personal initiative. We think we've made enough posts on it to prove that point. And we're all for people selling biodiesel. And LA's a perfect environment for it, and it's cool to have a biodiesel option when renting a car around LAX. So in a way, we applaud Bio-Beetles, a new rental agency near the airport. That said, one can only refuel the cars in one spot; a Culver City parking lot. Plus, apparently, the company only allows one to use bio-diesel. This smacks of the irritatiing self-righteousness that annoys us about the environmental movement, even as we applaud their motives.
