Default Volkswagen, Partners Study Biofuel

I came across the below article, while googling "Volkswagen News", or some such today. Based on the article, ethanol could become a major player as an alternative fuel for automobiles. Also, there was a program on 60 Minutes last night about coal gasification, which is yet another way to go, but my favorite choice would be biodiesel, since it works well the the high compression diesel engine.
