Default High quality crude oil from North Dakota and Montana

Interesting bit of info in this article: ... crude.html

Vander Valk says the oil from the Bakken Field of North Dakota and Montana requires little refining.

"It is such a high quality the oil could be actually burned in a diesel engine without being refined. It's that good," he said.
I wonder if you really could do that.........

Default Re: High quality crude oil from North Dakota and Montana

You may have noticed, I'm slowly moving towards North Dakota. When I arrive, I will need to get a diesel powered RV. Then I will buy a small piece of Bakken turf, and stuff a garden hose into it to extract my fuel.
At that point, I will have achieved propulsion perfection.
It's not a sprint(er) (unless you make it one), it's (hopefully) a marathon.
