Solar outdoor lights look like regular outdoor lights, but they are anything but ordinary. 

PV panels collect energy and store it in a deep-cycle, maintenance-free, gel-cell battery. This battery powers the lights at night and can store enough energy to run the lights for five to seven consecutive days without sun.

With hydrogen such a long way off and pure electric vehicles still having some significant limitations, biofuels are increasingly being seen as an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels that can be introduced now and remain through the short to long term.

Biodiesel is the only alternative fuel to have fully completed the health effects testing requirements of the Clean Air Act. The use of biodiesel in a conventional diesel engine results in substantial reduction of unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and particulate matter when compared to emissions from petroleum diesel fuel. In addition, the exhaust emissions of sulfur oxides and sulfates (major components of acid rain) from biodiesel are essentially eliminated compared to diesel. (Source:

With the ability of all diesel cars to run on biodiesel mixed at 5 per cent with standard diesel without any modification or warranty problems there is a clear benefit of using biodiesel in low percentage blends.
