Methanol Can Free Us From Oil: We do not need either gasoline or diesel to run our vehicles!
All internal combustion engines, whether spark ignited or diesel engines,
can be modified to run on the alcohols methanol or ethanol.
Many spark ignited engines don't need more than $100 of fuel line
modifications. Actually most American cars can run a percentage of methanol
in their fuel with very little modification. If you have a Flex Fueled car,
and E85 car, you are in an even better situation. The Lotus Car Company
says that current E-85 (so called Flex Fueled) vehicles can run up to 50%
methanol, 40% gasoline and 10% ethanol with no changes in performance, no
indicator lights going on, and have more power and fewer emissions. Why
would you want to do this? Because methanol is cheaper than gasoline or
ethanol..And imagine how much oil we could immediately save. Have a look
you will be surprised how much you can do.

2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 - Jay Leno's Garage
How fast could you go? Do the power-to-weight math: 155 at the rear wheel
at 452 pounds...
Competition is fierce in the crowded realm of the literbike. So despite an
incredible record of consecutive AMA Superbike wins, Suzuki decided to go
back to the drawing board for a completely new soup-to-nuts redesign of the
GSX-R1000 for 2009. Suzuki Motorcycle's Garrett Kai jokes that the only
elements carried over from last year's model are the fuel tank cap and the
oil filter. The differences may seem subtle to the untrained eye, but to a
superbike aficionado, Suzuki has gone the distance to improve upon previous
The overall appearance of the Gixxer Thou is more aggressive and more
refined, and more compact than its forebear. Weight has been cut back six
pounds to a total net of 452 pounds. The redesigned 999cc inline
four-cylinder engine is over two inches shorter, which in turn shortens the
wheelbase for greater maneuverability, and allows for a longer swingarm,
yielding improved corner traction. Technology from racing's cutting edge
has informed most aspects of the bike's new design, including a new
cable-actuated clutch system, and big piston forks. Indeed, with 155 hp at
the rear wheel, you might want to have some racing experience before
attempting to tap this bike's potential. That's right, for a mere $12,899,
you too can enjoy grand prix performance in a two-wheeled street machine.
An avid Suzuki collector, Jay already has a 1975 RE5 and a 1966 X6 Hustler
among others in his collection, and was beyond thrilled when Suzuki
presented him with the first production GSX-R1000 as a thank you for his
support of the motorcycle industry. Jay will have to break his Gixxer in
easy for the first 500 miles, keeping it below 4000 rpm - where most cars
