Rootamental needs a smart car to visit the shops and distribute our skateboards. Turns out a friend is hooking us up with the radest 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300TD wagon turbo diesel.
My first car was a wagon I knew then that was the perfect car. The Diesel is good form of ECO transportation using Bio-Diesel. “Biodiesel is a cleaner-burning, renewable fuel that is non-toxic, biodegradable, and can be run in any standard diesel engine without modifications. It has better emissions, and only a slight loss in power when compared to regular diesel. When considering biodiesel for your vehicle, you must look at where your nearest biodiesel station is. This website: http://www.biodiesel.org/buyingbiodiesel/retailfuelingsites/ will help you find out where your nearest retailer is.”

I am ampted on the BioDiesel you should know we owe it all to this guy Rudolf Diesel born 1858.
In the evening of 29 September 1913, Diesel boarded the post office steamer Dresden in Antwerp on his way to a meeting of the Consolidated Diesel Manufacturing company in London. He took dinner on board the ship and then retired to his cabin at about 10 p.m., leaving word for him to be called the next morning at 6:15 a.m.. He was never seen alive again. Ten days later, the crew of the Dutch boat Coertsen came upon the corpse of a man floating in the sea. The body was in such an advanced state of decomposition that they did not bring it aboard. Instead, the crew retrieved personal items (pill case, wallet, pocket knife, eyeglass case) from the clothing of the dead man, and returned the body to the sea. On 13 October these items were identified by Rudolf’s son, Eugen Diesel, as belonging to his father.
