I see. Well considering what Tata's done with the brand so far and how much it's improved, I wouldn't mind seeing what they could come up with.

No doubt using biodiesel rwill reduce co2 emmisions - but you totally missed the point that we do not have enough arable land to actually grow the plant stock to produce enough of it.

As I said above - we either:
  1. use that land for growing food crops so we actually have food to survive, or
  2. we use it for plants needed to make vegetable oil for biodiesel so we can drive.
It is honestly that black and white. And this is why an alternative, like electric vehicles, is needed.

We need something electric vehicles (or similar alternative) for general day-to-day commuting - which the majority of car owners use their vehicles for. Then use newer biofuel vehicles to compliment those electric vehicles (or alternatives) for longhaul and other areas where electric vehicles are not suitable - because we simply can not produce enough of the biofuels to totally replace gas and diesel)

It can be made from many things - but not in the quantities we would need to replace gasoline

ATM the only thing that looks like a possibility and will not require arable land, is algae, but that is still many years off being a viable option for even a small city, let alone the whole world.

Except that we have lots and lots of land. Even in this county, they could be growing ooodles of corn for biodiesel, if it wasn't for the speculators that are sitting on tens of thousands of acres, waiting to build some new subdivision we don't need. We just need to do things smarter, like allow redevelopment of the existing city - and stop wasting land on speculators.
