Willie Nelson’s Biodiesel Fueled Mercedes

MAUI, Hawaii – Willie Nelson has fueled millions of fans worldwide with music for decades, but when it comes to his fuel of choice, the country music star has proclaimed himself a fan of biodiesel. Biodiesel, an alternative fuel made from renewable fats or vegetable oils, can be used in any diesel engine, including the star’s 2005 Mercedes 320 CDI. Nelson picked up his brand new vehicle at the dock and drove it straight to the pump at Pacific Biodiesel, a Hawaii-based manufacturer.

“I am absolutely a fan of biodiesel,” Nelson said. “I use it in my car because I’m a firm believer in using renewable fuels that are better for our environment. We should all be doing our part to reduce our reliance on foreign oil and contribute to our own economy. On top of all that, biodiesel use helps our nation’s family farmers, while preserving the land for future generations.”
